Choices made on the Load/Save - HTML Compatibility dialog affect HTML pages imported into and those exported from OOo. See HTML documents; importing/exporting in the Help for more information.

Choosing HTML compatibility options.

Font sizes

Use these fields to define the respective font sizes for the HTML <font size=1> to <font size=7> tags, if they are used in the HTML pages. (Many pages no longer use these tags.)

Import - Use 'English (USA)' locale for numbers

When importing numbers from an HTML page, the decimal and thousands separator characters differ according to the locale of the HTML page. The clipboard, however, contains no information about the locale. If this option is not selected, numbers will be interpreted according to the Language - Locale setting in Tools > Options > Language Settings > Languages. If this option is selected, numbers will be interpreted as for the English (USA) locale.

Import - Import unknown HTML tags as fields

Select this checkbox if you want tags that are not recognized by OOo to be imported as fields. For an opening tag, an HTML_ON field will be created with the value of the tag name. For a closing tag, an HTML_OFF will be created. These fields will be converted to tags in the HTML export.

Import - Ignore font settings

Select this checkbox to have OOo ignore all font settings when importing. The fonts that were defined in the HTML Page Style will be used.


To optimize the HTML export, select a browser or HTML standard from the Export box. If Writer is selected, specific Writer instructions are exported.

Export - Basic

Select this checkbox to include OOo Basic macros (scripts) when exporting to HTML format. You must activate this option before you create the Basic macro; otherwise the script will not be inserted. Basic macros must be located in the header of the HTML document. Once you have created the macro in the Basic IDE, it appears in the source text of the HTML document in the header.

If you want the macro to run automatically when the HTML document is opened, choose Tools > Customize > Events. See Chapter 17 (Getting Started with Macros) for more information.

Export - Display warning

When the Basic checkbox (see above) is not selected, the Display warning checkbox becomes available. If the Display warning checkbox is selected, then when exporting to HTML a warning is shown that Basic macros will be lost.

Export - Print layout

Select this checkbox to export the print layout of the current document as well. It can be read by and by Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 and above.

The HTML filter supports CSS2 (Cascading Style Sheets Level 2) for printing documents. These capabilities are only effective if print layout export is activated.

Export - Copy local graphics to Internet

Select this checkbox to automatically upload the embedded pictures to the Internet server when uploading using FTP.

Export - Character set

Select the appropriate character set for the export.
