Convert HTML to DOC File

Sometimes it is necessary to convert an HTML page or document into DOC, which has many online conversion services available. In this article we will discuss how to do it through Microsoft Office Word.

HTML is a markup language that is used for the development of Internet pages. This is the acronym that corresponds to HyperText Markup Language, which could be translated as Document Format Language for Hypertext. Emerged from SGML (Standard Generalized Markup Language) tags, a concept generally translated as "Generalized Markup Language Standard" and understood as a system that allows ordering and tagging various documents within a list. This language is the one used to specify the names of the labels that will be used when ordering, there are no rules for said organization, that is why it is said to be an open format system. HTML is responsible for developing a description of the contents that appear as texts and their structure, complementing said text with various objects (such as photographs, animations, etc.).

DOC is a file extension created by Microsoft for Office WORD, during  the 90's decade, being a standard for office documents. This type of file, which originated as a plain text document, now supports many functionality, such as inserting hyperlinks and images, and modifying margins or word wrap.Microsoft Word chose the DOC file extension as the default since its creation, however in recent years this type of file has lost popularity, as similar file extensions have replaced the DOC extension, including the best known which is the DOCX extension. . DOC files are currently used to store plain text instead of handling rich text and complex formats.

The natural thing is that the conversion is from DOC to HTML, however, it can also be done in reverse, the steps are as follows:

  1. Save the web page as an HTML file.
  2. Right click on the file and then click on 'Open with'.
  3. Choose Microsoft Word, it is possible that some CSS elements, images or other Multimedia do not load correctly, you will have to do it manually.
  4. You can edit what you want optionally.
  5. Save the file in 'Save As' and then choose DOC from the drop down menu.

This will save the previously HTML file in DOC as a regular Word document.
