What is your website address.

I have a feeling word has made the location for the pictures in a weird place

The image locations in the HTML code are: http://vivhau.webs.com/Activity%202.2_files/image005.gif etc. So images should be located in a sub directory of your main directory. I'm not sure what the setup of webs.com is, did you use FTP to upload or an online file manager? You could try creating the sub directory (/Activity 2.2_files/) and uploading the images there or uploading the images into the main directory and alter the HTML to point to their new locations.

Without being rude can I ask why you used Word to create a website? It always creates messy bloated code thats non-complaint. The webs.com site seems to have templates available with an online editing suite, perhaps thats an option to look into?

If you are completing an educational qualification that requires you to use Microsoft Word to create a website, you should be making a formal written complaint in my opinion.

You might as well be doing an electrical qualification and be being told to use sellotape to insulate house wiring.

P.S. I used to teach NZQA Level 5/6 Technical Computing.

Wow - that's pretty scary - there are really institutions out there teaching people to create web pages using Word? That's just downright misleading!

What is this course? What skills are they aiming to arm you with?

Why do I feel unclean after discovering an educational institution is making you create HTML with MS word.

Have a look at the actual code you are producing, and it will give you a very clear indication of why so many people here are choking on their weeties.

Viv, I work at local council... and I was a tertiary tutor on Web Development course... and like @wellygary and @tonyhughes... it is unethical to use Word2007 to learn/produce HTML/website...

tsk tsk tsk.

Not quite...I choked on my coffee! What a waste of crappy coffee...

This is exactly why you shouldn't do this assignment as described by your course - if you had created the HTML by hand, or at least with a tool designed for this purpose, you would have discovered quickly why it's not working as expected.

If you're even mildly interested in IT then please don't give up - please ask even the simplest seemingly-idiotic noob questions here to get you started. I can pretty much guarantee many people will jump to help point you in the right direction to start with, ie. away from Word :o)

Yep.... everyone collectively sprayed their screens with coffee reading about Word for a website.

I accept you may be required to use it, but you should speak up about this, and ask if you can do it properly.

Doing it properly will generally be easier, faster, more browser-compatible, more standards compliant, and simply give you a better educational experience.

Wow didn't think this would be so bad. I am doing a NZ Diploma in Business this is an Applied Computing course. I do not think the point of this course is to learn to make websites I think it was just a little (altho not easy) task to prove it can be done. But by reading your feedback maybe they shouldn't of put it in. I have actually talked to a fellow classmate and have worked out the problem. I will consider talking to my tutor about future uses of Word for creating sites.
Thanks :D

Add me to the list of users who are "in shock" because people not only use Word to create websites (even if it's just for fun), but are actually teaching others to do the same.

Doing it in Notepad is not only easy, but also fun. You should give it a try. :)
