Arrrrgggghhhhh!  Please!!!!  NO NO No no....

Which size screen should he save for?  14"? 17"? 19"

I have a 56k modem.  If he scans his page as an image and posts it I will 
never wait around while it downloads.  I'll just pop over to his 
competitor's site.  Besides, he can't add in stuff like an e-mail response 
icon.

But if you do decide to do that anyway, please save it with progressive 
loading so at least I can see a hazy view of your page before I go to your 
competitor's site.

Sure.  Print your word document, scan it, then post the
resulting GIF (or JPEG) file as your web page.

Publishing a web page is not the same as publishing a hard-
copy document.  You can't count on the exact same formatting
since you can never be sure of exactly how the document will
be viewed on different browsers.  For example, you have
different screen sizes, different color depths, and that's
not even getting into specific browser implementation
differences.

What many people do is convert their docs into PDF form, but
that requires your visitors to print out the doc themselves.

Cheers!  Hans
