    Converting Word document into html for ebay

    Just a quick question. Is there any way to convert a word document into readable HTML code that Ebay can understand?
    My mom ha been doing alot of ebay selling lately and she wrote an article description in word. She used TAB to create spacing for a list and of course when you copy paste that into the ebay window for the description all the TAB information gets lost. I tried to save the word file as an HTML and then paste the source code, but no good. Any suggestions here or do I need reinsert all the spacing manually?

    Have you tried that? hmmm those are more for converting it to a website not just text so maybe the only way to do it is manually.


    Edit: Here is a cool link. http://www.oreillynet.com/mac/blog/2...word_docs.html

    WebCT, Uvic?? Lol, I went to that University and worked at the German Department where we developed WebCT. Small Planet I guess. Man that brings up memories. I Really miss Canada.
    As for the Gmail thing I can't use that since I don't have Gmail and probably never will (unless they stop collecting private data, which I doubt they will).

    Yeah saving Word documents as HTML works, it just creates some nasty HTML but it should work fine for what your mom needs.
