Publish Web pages

Posting modified Web pages

Warning! The publishing process copies modified versions of your pages back to their original location so make sure you have a backup copy of your pages.

The modified pages are stored in your 'Work folder' (by default this is located in your 'My documents' folder) and you may prefer to review the changes made by the tool before copying them to your site.

The code WEFT adds to your pages

WEFT adds a STYLE section to the HEAD part of each HTML page that uses one or more font object. The code added conforms to the current W3C CSS2 specification.

<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
<!-- /* $WEFT -- Created by: n ( ) on dd/mm/yyyy -- */ 
  @font-face {
    font-family: Garamond;
    font-style: italic;
    font-weight: normal;
    src: url(Garamond1.eot); 

This code tells Microsoft Internet Explorer to use the 'Garamond1.eot' font object whenever the font Garamond Italic is specified within the page. The browser will use the font object regardless of whether the font is specified using the FONT FACE tag, a linked or inline Cascading Style Sheet or some other method.

Options on this screen

Explore : Clicking this button will open your WEFT 'work folder' using Windows Explorer. The location of the work folder is shown in the grayed-out box to the side of the 'Explore' button. The location of your WEFT work folder defaults to your 'My Documents' folder but may be changed via 'Tools', 'Options', 'Settings', 'WEFT', 'Work folder'.

Do not upload modified pages to my server : Selecting this option will result in WEFT skipping the page upload process. If you select this option you can still add font object linking code to your pages manually or selectively copy modified pages from your work folder.

Back : Use this button to return to the 'Create font objects' screen.

Next : Click here to execute the options selected on this screen and move on to the 'Finished' screen.
