OpenOffice / LibreOffice HTML Translation

Taking over management of a web-site, the fellow before creates by hand a calendar in OpenOffice--I now use LibreOffice--to print monthly so folk can post it on their wall or refrigerator or whatever. He also does a <.SaveAsHTML> to post it on the web-site.

A sample address on the link within *Office, when I look with the hyperlink tool:
But when I look at the web page on the web site it's
How does this translation take place ?
How does it know to go one deep from the DOCROOT as <.calendar> on the web URL is missing in the Document's rendition?

(The real question, of course, is how can I change hierarchical structure within the home computer and on the web-site -- I need to understand the process before I begin.)

My research just tells me to use the GUI.

fwiw: web site uses frames, I'm learning HTML5 to redo it in HTML5, then once converted, use a CMS, etc. But for now, let me just update the site as necessary.

Another example: sometimes the target is a program:
which becomes
Where do I go to begin to educate myself ?

CMS info is missing?
- that is more important.

Don't save as html (it can never be tidy enough), esp if pdf is what you want.

Question isn't about PDF

Hi A.Mani:
A .pdf is not what I want, in fact I already create a PDF version and have a link at the top of the calendar to get the PDF version if you want another printable copy.

What I want is two things: the first is to understand the link translation structure so I can change the physical structure of the data on both the source computer and on the web page. The second is where can I go to figure this out so I don't clutter up this forum.

The calendar has links for many of its items since real estate is scarce and a calendar's main purpose is "meeting is THIS Thursday, not NEXT", more rarely a source for details.

Because the original web-site was designed using frames, links from the PDF file, if using your suggestion, won't work as the individual pages are hidden within the frame structure.

There is no CMS engine.

The web-site was designed and written long ago, before such things were in vogue or perhaps even available.

My own expertise: the last HTML spec I read was the 2.0 spec, I've been maintaining web-sites and web-hosting sites while mostly doing other, non-web projects, so though not ignorant, I'm ill-practiced and not up on the latest, which I'm now correcting.

I have purchased two O'Reiley books: the HTML5 and the PHP/mySQL/javascript, which I'm beginning to read now, as well as learning CSS stuff of which I'm currently pedestrian.

I am now deciding whether to use Drupal or Joomla! as my CMS engine and then get it activated on the site where my problem site is currently hosted. (FWIW, I'm leaning towards Drupal, a friend of mine has just centered upon Joomla! so we'll be able to learn from each other, and experientially discover which is the best choice.)

One problem on the current site is a certain kind of informational file has become a large number of files.
I would like to just make it hierarchical so that the current information can remain flat as it is, but hide away the less current stuff, so that current stuff is still only a click away. Etc.

Not knowing how the 'save as HTML' is doing the translation of addressing as I've described, I don't know how to change the data structure, local and remote, that I may quickly solve this problem and devote my time to redesigning the site with the current tools and understandings.
