The configuration options for 'HTML document – WEB page' and 'HTML MIME encoded file export' are common to both formats, see below. (If exporting to HTML5 UberEd format, see HTML5 UberEd export options instead.)
|•||Choose an HTML output format from the Options|Configuration dialog (f8) then click the HTML options... button on the 'General' page, or |
Choose an HTML format from the File|Export dialog (Ctrl E) then click HTML options....
|•||Click Apply to accept the 'options' page configuration.|
EscapeE resumes displaying the 'General' page or
the Export dialog.
|1.||Select save in XML format for XHTML only if normal HTML is inappropriate.|
|2.||To export the document in HTML containing a single graphic image per page, choose render as graphic; element options (see below) do not apply.|
|3.||Set up the file prefix to be used for creating the resource files. (If left blank the output filename will be used as the prefix.) Numbers will be appended to the names so that each resource file is uniquely identified.|
|4.||Set up the local file path to be used for storing the resource files. If left blank the resources will stored in the same location as the output file.|
|5.||Set up the URI path for use when the page is referenced via the Internet.|
|6.||Click Apply to set up these options and return to the 'General' page.|
In addition, when you have finished setting up the options, you may also choose to create a Shortcut icon that uses all the options you have set by clicking Shortcut... (see Shortcuts - the easy way to construct a command line) or Click the Save button to retain these settings after you close the program.
|•||To store text as longer phrases (to improve searching) select combine text strings together.|
|•||To combine the non-text (graphic) elements into a single graphic image of each page while retaining the text elements, choose render all but text as graphic. |
|•||Selecting always use standard fonts ensures that fonts are never rendered as bitmaps. De-select this option if the document contains non-standard fonts, for example to allow logos coded as characters to be rendered as bitmaps.|
|•||Select keep original element order if the document has ordered opaque elements (e.g. shading) to overwrite text or lines.|
An HTML document consists of a sequence of elements: text, lines, shading, images etc. EscapeE enables you to choose whether to output the pages as individual elements or as a single PNG image or as a combination of text and a single PNG image.
The elements in the document are placed at absolute positions and will be ordered so that 'solid' elements (e.g. graphics) occur before 'open' elements (e.g. text). This ensures that text cannot be obscured by opaque elements. You may override this feature by selecting the Keep original element order option.
If the fonts defined in the original PCL document are not also in the browser's resources, substitute fonts will be used. If this noticeably affects the appearance of the document, you may opt to output an image of the document instead.
The Local file prefix can be set up as a prefix to the resource files being created. The actual filenames used will be made by concatenating this prefix with the resource name. File locations may be specified as 'relative' or 'absolute'. The URI prefix should be the corresponding web URI for the directory path of the filename.
