    Converting a complex Word doc into basic HTML (2007)

    Hi there -

    I'm trying to convert the attached doc into HTML, for publication at http://prewarevidence.blogspot.com.

    Option #1--saving the file as "Web Page, Filtered"--is quick and easy, but leaves a ton of Word-specific junk in the HTML.

    Option #2--copying the text manually (see, for example, http://prewarevidence.blogspot.com/2...roduction.html)--is tedious and time-consuming, and doesn't capture the italics or hyperlinked footnotes.

    There's gotta be an option #3, right? Thanks so much!

    Would a pdf file serve your purposes? In Word 2007, "Save as", "PDF or XPS" allows you to save your document as a pdf file. It uses the hyperlinks in the output pdf document, and it's a quick and painless process.

    Alternatively, if you also have to create pdfs from non-Office applications, PDFCreator allows you to "print" from any program to a pdf file, and is available at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator - it also uses the hyperlinks in the output file.

    jwitalka and cephas0z - Sorry for the delayed response, and thanks so much for your replies. Unfortunately, neither website does a comprehensive job. Even http://word2cleanhtml.com, which has excellent SEO for "convert word to html," has shortcommings. Thanks again.
