Mike recommends using a HTML editor to write the copy, save and then submit to the client. Me personally, i've only ever dabbled in HTML and to be honest I dont think that as a copy writer it is my job to create HTML pages for the client.
In my previous jobs/projects which I must admit have been small I have just supplied the word doc along with a PDF and any images I have used in separate files and the client has been happy. In fact that is how one of them told me to submit it.
They had their web guys do the upload for them. Which only sounds logical to me.
So anyways, Ilistened to Mike and downloaded a free HTML editor called coffee cup. I opened it up and I was like "Woah! nup not gonna work for me". I thought I could just switch moded like in some of the more popular web based blog platforms and 'bobs-ya-unlce! done'.
My thoughts are that unless Im forced into learning HTML and saving docs in that type of format, im just going to continue writing in a WORD DOCUMENT and let the client do the conversion into HTML.
What are others thoughts?
What software or program do you use and why?
Cheers guys, much appreciated.
