One more thing to be aware of when using MS-Word to write your web pages: Normally, web pages written in English use the ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1) character set. But Microsoft has defined a non-standard extension to it (surprise, surprise!). This extension includes certain punctuation characters, which display as question marks or blobs when viewed using non-MS browsers. Some consider these question marks in HTML documents as quaint, others view them as amateurish. But, if you think it's harmless, think again. There are legal considerations. For example, one of those extended characters is the TM symbol. That symbol won't show up for a large number of visitors to your web page, which will make your lawyers unhappy. If you absolutely must use MS tools, you need to be aware of the situation and how to fix it. There's a tool called the "demoroniser" available at: http://www.fourmilab.ch/webtools/demoroniser/ (Here's a good quote from that web site: 'Rule of thumb--every time Microsoft use the word "smart," be on the lookout for something dumb.')
