For a word document cut and paste would be the easiest option, but also if you have your own domain and a way to get your file up on the web, you can also make a link to it... you can do the same thing with video clips, ppt etc. too.

I've found this forum's format a little restrictive for long, elaborate posts so I've uploaded recipes to my own homepage, home.earthlink.net/~myjunketc/ and just put the link in my reply. Anyone curious is welcome to poke around there for info. I pay for home broadband and this comes free with my package, so I might as well put it to good use.

In the US, if you're paying for broadband internet access, your provider may have already given you some "home page" space where you can upload files. Also there are many hosting sites that offer free space (they include ads).

Once you have your own internet space, you can upload anything you wish. However, many businesses block the ability to download Microsoft Office documents since they may contain hidden macros (small, embedded computer programs) that can do evil things on your computer. The best alternative is to convert that Office document to PDF and upload it to your space in that format. PDF (Adobe Acrobat Reader) files are widely accepted and are usually not blocked for download by businesses. Photos are usually not blocked either.

The format for publishing on the web is HTML (HyperText Markup Language). This forum does NOT accept documents formatted with HTML. However, WORD (and most word processing software) has the ability to export a document to HTML, which you can then upload to your space.

If you're interested in exploring easy ways to write your own HTML documents, you could download the free Web authoring program Nvu from www.nvu.com/. Nvu runs on Windows, Mac and Linux.
