If you save your workbook as an HTML document, some of the cell formatting may not be saved with the workbook.
If you use the Conditional Formatting feature to apply formats to cells, the formatting is not saved with your workbook when you save it as an HTML document.
Currently, there is no way to save your workbook as an HTML document and have it preserve the formatting created by the Conditional Formatting feature.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.
The Internet Assistant Wizard is not new to Microsoft Excel, but it has changed significantly since it was released as a free add-in available on the Microsoft World Wide Web site in January 1996. The Internet Assistant Wizard is now an installable component of Microsoft Office and/or Microsoft Excel, and has been enhanced to take advantage of the new Internet features of Microsoft Office, Microsoft FrontPage, and Microsoft Internet Explorer.
With the Internet Assistant Wizard, you can leverage existing Microsoft Excel spreadsheet data to create and distribute documents that can be viewed online with a Web browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer. By clicking a series of buttons in the wizard, you can convert spreadsheet data to HTML format, either as a separate Web document or into an existing Web document.
