I am a print designer and was asked by a client to create an HTML file of a flyer that I’d created in InDesign for online/email marketing. I discovered that InDesign’s export function to HTML doesn’t retain the original page layout. I searched online and found a service (In5) that will create HTML from InDesign while retaining the page layout. The only problem with the demo version I downloaded is that it has a “demo” watermark all across the page so I can’t send it to the client. However, I cannot justify signing up for In5’s service for this one project because it is costly and they charge per year (not month-to-month).
Would anyone have any other suggestions regarding how to export to HTML from InDesign while retaining the original page layout? Not sure if there is a script or if I should recreate the file in a different program that is more HTML-friendly in regards to exporting the page.
