    Microsoft left out "centering" and "dynamic sizing" of Publisher. About the
    best alternative is to use the "Wide" setting in the page sizing. Folks who
    have their computers set the display at 800x600 and lower will have their
    monitor displays filled with the web page. Now if you set your page size to
    say 12 or 14 inches, you will see your monitor filled but many folks with
    display settings lower than yours will be required to horizontally scroll to
    see it all.

    The reason the MVPs give for leaving out these features is, "Publisher isn't
    primarily a website design program. It's primarily for designing and
    publishing paper doents." But it seems adding the <center> and </center>
    lines to the html files would take less effort than all the doentation in
    the Help file regarding creating websites. It does create the suspicion
    Microsoft wants you to buy another program.

    Don it's a matter of the technology and to a lessor degree, resources.
    Professional web designers stay current with the technology and web
    standards. The resource for that is http://www.w3c.org . A quick point to
    make, the center tag has long been deprecated. Type that tag in FrontPage or
    other design tool and it'll display a notice to not use it. It was replaced
    by other avenues within CSS2. Which is the technology designed to replace
    traditional HTML. CSS2 became the default for Pub 2000, at a time when lots
    of browsers didn't support it, or support it fully. But Pub 2000 still
    retained it's old html code base as an option. Versions 2002 and 2003 use
    CSS2 exclusively. If you read up on the CSS2 standards you can learn about
    absolute positioning and relative positioning. And divs and spans. All of
    which replace traditional HTML tables, rows, and cells. (although it is
    common to intermix some html tables, etc. in with CSS2). CSS2 solidifies the
    design standard of left to right for a predefined width. Centering and
    dynamic sizing are not that easy. It's not just a matter of wrapping
    everything in a center tag, as you well know already.

    In my conversations with MS over the last few years, when the topic of
    supporting centering and dynamic sizing has come up, it's been determined
    that they cannot justify the resources it would take to do that. Based on the
    number of items that are more important and the very small number of
    customers that think Publisher is broken because it doesn't support them.

    Ya think? At the same time, they continue to lie in their sales literature abut
    the suitability of Publisher for web site design.

    It does create the suspicion

    At the very least, the s could have the decency to provide a way to move
    Publisher websites into Front Page. You may talk around all the pitiful defects
    in Publisher, but there is no way you can justify this horrible oversight.
