Default how do i create an html email using word

MY company would like a simple Word html newletter email that can be updated
by various subsidaries. Ideally we'd like to "lock" formatting and some
graphics and have editible regions.
Any Help?

Default how do i create an html email using word

Word is a poor html creation application. I doubt that Word's implementation
will enable you to provide the elements you require - however set the web
view to view the formatting and save as a web page.Better still use a proper
html creation tool to create the page
or
create it as an attachment as a Word document form or (if you have the full
version of Acrobat) a pdf format form.

If you send out the newsletter to customers, ensure that they can choose for
a text-only version of the newsletter as well. There are a lot of people out
there who don't like fancy graphics.

If, you have control over the source-HTML of your Newsletter page,

You can source a DIV CONTENTEDITABLE ... and within get the features you
find in your richtext e-mail, Ctrl-B bold, Ctrl-I italic-emphasis, Ctrl-U
underline, Ctrl-C copy, Ctrl-X Cut, Ctrl-V Paste, Dragdrop ... the basics
(More you'll have to script).

The main source will-then supply all the STYLE CSS/text you want to
pre-control.

If you've already started the Newsletter in Word, just Copy-Paste it into
that DIV....

You can (probably) construct your original Newsletter with DIV-inside-DIV
and then back-off the CONTENTEDITABLE from the outer-DIV source-HTML: leaving
an inner.

CONTENTEDITABLE is supported in IE since wayback, and 'Fieryfox' one-Div-only.
