I’ve been thinking about making calendars for loved ones this year…and when I’ve tried it before, one of the most daunting parts is just generating all the months. and since I no longer have the hard drive that had PageMaker, I was looking forward to creating all of this in Word. and we all know how much I like dealing with the advanced features of Word. (um, that would be almost not at all, esp. when it comes to tables.)
but yesterday morning, in my bleary half-awake walk to the bus, it occurred to me that I already know a script for generating calendars, and that if I generated a calendar in HTML, I could import it into Word (IE will copy with style, Moz w/out) and that would get me most of the way there.
so, here’s my starter file – I’m going to play around with some CSS to get it reasonably close before copy/pasting into Word. now I just need to find a cool picture in a large enough resolution.
