I am building an addition to a company web-site that reads text dynamically and displays it on the page. My options are SSI (Server Side Includes) or just an ActiveX control with a rich textbox. The ActiveX control will simply take an .rtf file created by the content owner with ease, and everything looks very nice. ActiveX controls are a little more troublesome, however. The SSI can read right off the server straight from an html document. The downside here, is that when I try to edit a document in Word (saving as html), it looks like crap when it comes out. No single spacing, fonts sporadically change mid sentence, carriage returns get lost, among other bizarre junk. Anyone have any advice on this? I don't want to use CGI/Perl.
