Preparing Microsoft Word Source Documents : Working with the WebWorks Transit Menu for Word : Creating a Passthrough Marker in Word
Creating a Passthrough Marker in Word
A passthrough marker is a marker that allows you to insert content that you do not want ePublisher to process when you generate output. For example, if you have embedded multimedia files in your source documents, such as Audio Video Interleave files (.avi) or Adobe Software Flash files (.swf), you can insert a passthrough marker with a value that is set to the HTML code that you do not want ePublisher to process.
The following example shows .avi code to which you could insert using a passthrough marker.
<embed src="sample.avi" width="400"
height="300" pluginspage=";>
