All of our writers and editors use Microsoft Word for document creation and a lot of what they create ends up on the Web. Is there a good offline editor with a flavor similar to Word that they could use to create their documents. Styling of the content should not be a concern, only producing semantic HTML (most documents they create could be done using only header and paragraph tags for instance). They have tried CKEditor and TinyMCE but it is still too foreign for them and it is online so they don't trust it not to lose their work.

  • When you googled HTML editor, what did you find? Where there dozens? Do you have specific questions about any of the dozens of off-line editors? – S.Lott Mar 17 '10 at 15:44
  • Notepad++ perhaps – c0mrade Mar 17 '10 at 15:44

    Shouldn't this question be posted on superuser.com ? – incarnate Mar 17 '10 at 15:45

    This was closed as "off-topic". Shouldn't it have been migrated to superuser.com instead? – mipadi Mar 17 '10 at 15:51

    @mipadi Yep. I've voted to reopen so we can send it that way. – ceejayoz Mar 17 '10 at 15:57

    We're talking about people currently using, of all things, Word as an HTML editor. I have a feeling WYSIWYG is required, and last I checked, you won't get that in Notepad++. – Michael Madsen Mar 17 '10 at 15:48

Have you taken a look at OpenOffice and its XHTML export? From what little I've toyed around with it, it produces very clean code - turns OpenOffice headings into HTML headings and so on. It even exports images as inline "data" URLs.
