    simple, clean HTML output from Word 2000 (2000)

    Is there a way to keep Word from adding so much extra "stufff" to its "Save as HTML" output? Word97 was quite good, actually. It produced quite clean and simple HTML code. Word 2000, OTOH, produces code with so much extra crap that it's sometimes hard to find the HTML!

    The issue isn't really that it's hard for me to find the HTML, it's that I sometimes want to feed Word's HTML to other programs and they choke on the added rubbish.

    The real question is this -- are there options I haven't yet found to tell Word not to emit cascading style sheets and whatever else it's producing?

    Not really. There is a filter that will simplify some of it, but it doesn't get rid of it completely. See <!post=Post #93171,93171>Post #93171<!/post>.

    Has anyone followed the path of saving the file as RTF and then using an XML translator to turn the code into html. It strikes me that this method might avoid a lot of extra noise that saving as HTML gives you.
