To export files to HTML

1.Choose Export... from the 'File' menu.
2.Select the page range you want to export.
3.Select Discard file list if you want same-named files to be overwritten - see File List.
4.Choose HTML as the 'Format'.
5.The filename *.HTM is supplied, and will create an HTML file with the same filename and location as the original document. To create a different filename or extension, type in the new name or use wildcards. To select a different folder for storing the file, use the Browse button. Note that if you enter the location of your web server here, the file will be directly available to the Internet.
6.Click HTML options... to set more options for export.
7.Tick the Force monochrome checkbox if required.
8.Tick Run the associated program after creating the file if you want EscapeE to open the file immediately using your preferred program, e.g. Internet Explorer.
9.If you have data fields set up in the document, select the format for the Log file. See options for Log file export.
10.Click OK to export the pages.


The document is output as a file written in HyperText Mark-up Language, suitable for display by a web browser. There is an option to output the document as XHTML i.e. the HTML is written using XML so that all elements start and end in a standardised way.

Documents typically require other resources (e.g. images); these must be stored in separate files, potentially in a different directory.

To print HTML documents created by EscapeE and containing vertical lines, ensure that "Print background colors and images" from the "Printing" section of IE's  "Tools | Internet options...| Advanced" dialogue is selected.
