Convert HTML to DOCX

If you need to convert an HTML page or document into DOCX this could be done by copying and pasting HTML content into Microsoft Word appliction. If this option is not applicable for you then you can use steps described at the bottom of this article. But let us introduce you to both formats first.

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.).

DOCX is the Word file format introduced by Microsoft Office starting in 2007 for Windows and Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac. It is part of Microsoft's Open Office XML file format, and replaces the previous DOC format. Although new versions of Microsoft Office can read old DOC files, older versions of Office cannot read new DOCX without special updates. DOCX is part of the Open Office XML format. According to the MSDN library, Microsoft adopted XML in Microsoft Office 2000, but did not fully integrate it until it implemented XML-based file formats in Microsoft Office 2007.

To perform HTML to DOCX conversion you need to perform the following steps:

  1. Save the web page as an HTML file.
  2. Right click on the file and then click on 'Open with' and choose Microsoft Word.
  3. 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 DOCX from the drop down menu.

This will save the exported HTML file in DOCX format as a regular Word document.
