More on Pt 2, Aaron..

I know about how Word creates the subfolder for images and XML.  However, he is doing this on his own machine which has no network connection to the remote server where everything has to go.  In order for the stuff to be on the remote server he would have to FTP it, create appropriate folders, etc., populate them with images, on the remote box.  He won't do that.

    1. You did, but you also said if he had Illustrator. Maybe he is thinking he needs to buy Illustrator as well?

    He has Illustrator and doesn't want to use that because he says it wants to "keep it simple" for his clients.

    2. Another option:
    He can output them directly to html from Word. Word creates the page and a folder to hold the images and an xml file. If he FTP's the page and the folder to a directory it will work. No renaming necessary. I just did it, took me under a minute.

    He doesn't want to FTP either.  I suggested that and he refuses stating that it's more work than he wants.  He wants it so that the HTML file, images and all, go at once to the same server, embedded as if they were the original .doc file.

    3. Of course, you could build him a form page that lets him type in some text and upload the image file and write the php which creates the html page upon submission...

    Nixed that too.  He wants a single upload.  He doesn't want to do any more work because it's "out of scope" with what he wants.

      I suggested it, that is what prompted his response.  He refuses to get Acrobat and expects ME to do everything about it!
