    That sounds like a pretty darn difficult task - and no, I don't know the answer to your question, just that I think it would take quite some time to create such a tool. There are of course tools out there, such as DreamWeaver that [I think] does this sort of thing for you.

    i dont like dream weaver as you can create a window and then move it around with the mouse etc , its all done with aligning in code , which is not nice to the basic user ,
    i would still write the html stuff to a .html file but it would just be created with mouse etc , dragging choosing size , setting focues , all kinds of neat stuff

    I don't get exactly what you want to do. You want to know how to create a table in a Windows Api? And then write is borders size in an html file?

    yes, exactly ,so instead of typing out html , you would create it on the fly with mouse press's , but also writing to the html file the correct syntax as you create it

    Basically, you want to create a WYSIWYG tool for developing webpages?

    this can easy be recreated with TextOut and CreateFont

    <p>
    <font size="2" face="Verdana">
    This is a paragraph.
    </font>

    Sure, ALL of it can be done - it's just not particularly easy.
