Can I Use LibreOffice Writer to Create a Website?

Can I use LibreOffice Writer to create a website? I noticed I am able to save as HTML in the menu.

YOu can save as HTML but the results do not reflect the design layout and also some of the funcionality.
Better to use an online free tool or one of the many packages available online.
Or read a HTML book, its actually very self intuitive…
Hope this helps.

I think so, but you must write your text using the HTML language.

This is the online-help:

Saving Text Documents in HTML Format

(The title is a little mis-leading, as it will convert a Writer document–including all graphics, etc, which will be saved as embedded data streams–from LO/OO format to HTML).

Be warned that the results are not exactly cutting edge:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
	<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
	<meta name="generator" content="LibreOffice (Linux)"/>
	<meta name="created" content="00:00:00"/>
	<meta name="changed" content="00:00:00"/>

You have sort of answered your own question. If you know how to code from scratch then it’s possible to write html pages using Writer. On the other hand, there are many programs that are built for web coding which would offer a host of time saving features.
