Default Do I need HTML or MHTML or XML for my one page website?

I am writing a sales letter to be uploaded to a one page website in order to
market a digital product. Does it have to be written HTML or XML or what and
can I just then convert it in Word or do I need a specialist to do that. I
see that I have an HTML editor within MSOffice 2003. Can I use that?

If it's going to be accessible to browers it has to be in
HTML at the very least.

You can use Word (or, surprisingly Excel as well). I've
heard it said that Word writes "execrable" HTML code, but
it's quick and easy and if you don't need a lot of "bells
and whistles" it's perfectly adequate for the job. In your
case it should be more than adequate. Compose the letter as
you normally would in Word and when making the final save,
click on File Save as Save as type (Web page, *.htm,
*.html). Avoid mixing upper and lower case letters in the
file name and to be safe, don't use spaces or any characters
other than letters and numbers.

The letter should be in HTML (or XHTML) to display in the browser. Generally
speaking, you'd be much better off with a proper HTML editor to create a web
page, but if all you want is a facsimile of a one page Word document you may
find that saving the document as filtered HTML will give you what you need.
You should check the result in several different browsers - Word does not
write pretty or standard HTML!
