I followed directions and created a separate document and the conversion to Web Page document went fine. However, somehow ALL of my word documents on my computer have been converted to web documents and none will change back. Is there a solution?
Michael, what did the "web page" look like? Just the standard internet appearance, or could you see the actual html tags?
(Must have been a dismaying moment!)
I've never seen the logic of saving a Word doc as html, then uploading the html, though JT has pointed out one case where it fixes a problem (tight dialogue not being properly indented). I am skeptical that Bill Gates can do a better job of converting for a Kindle than Jeff Bezos can.
JT is quite convincing when it comes to Word.doc to HTML.
FWIW, during my recent testing comparing the downloadable previewer vs the online one, I observed that para spacing was absent on the downloadable previewer in paperwhite emulation. The online previewer was OK.
Saving Word.doc to HTML prior to upload appeared to resolve this. I have no idea why, but the results were clear.
