module for writing MsWord documents in HTML format


MsOffice::Word::HTML-Writer is one way to programmatically generate documents targeted for Microsoft Word (MsWord).

MsWord can read documents encoded in native binary format, in Rich Text Format (RTF), in WordML (an XML dialect), or -- maybe this is less known -- in HTML, with some special markup for pagination and other MsWord-specific features. Such HTML documents are often in several parts, because attachments like images or headers/footers need to be in separate files; however, since it is more convenient to carry all data in a single file, MsWord also supports the "MHTML" format (or "MHT" for short), i.e. an encapsulation of a whole HTML tree into a single file encoded in MIME multipart format. This format can be generated interactively from MsWord by calling the "SaveAs" menu and choosing the .mht extension.

MsOffice::Word::HTML::Writer helps you to programmatically generate MsWord documents in MHT format. The advantage of this technique is that one can rely on standard HTML mechanisms for layout control, such as styles, tables, divs, etc -- of course this markup can be produced using your favorite HTML module. The added value of MsOffice::Word::HTML::Writer is to help building the MIME multipart file, and provide some abstractions for representing MsWord-specific features (headers, footers, fields, etc.). This is probably the most convenient way for programmatic document generation.
