Default Is there a way to make Word export to HTML in a simple format?

I have a somewhat large document in Word that I would like to export to HTML. Unfortuantely, when I use Word's built in Save As HTML function, it gets insane and spits out over 25,000 lines of HTML that mostly look like this:

Code:
<div style='mso-element:frame;mso-element-frame-width:.6in;mso-element-frame-height:
11.3pt;mso-element-wrap:auto;mso-element-anchor-vertical: page;mso-element-anchor-horizontal:
page;mso-element-left:302.45pt;mso-element-top:203.05pt'>

<table cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 hspace=0 vspace=0 width=57 height=15>
 <tr>
  <td valign=top align=left height=15 style='padding-top:0in;padding-right:
  0in;padding-bottom:0in;padding-left:0in'>
  <p class=MsoNormal align=right style='text-align:right;mso-pagination:none;
  tab-stops:.25in .5in;mso-layout-grid-align:none;text-autospace:none;
  mso-element:frame;mso-element-frame-width:.6in;mso-element-frame-height:11.3pt;
  mso-element-wrap:auto;mso-element-anchor-vertical: page;mso-element-anchor-horizontal:
  page;mso-element-left:302.45pt;mso-element-top:203.05pt'><span
  style='font-size:9.5pt;color:black'>Medium</span></p>
  </td>
 </tr>
</table>

</div>
Notice that this code, above, spits out ONE WORD - "Medium" - is that the stupidest thing you have ever seen or what?

Is there any way to get it to just spit out the raw, basic, simple HTML? This crap is totally not needed.

just copy and paste the text into notepad and put the appropriate html around it

<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled</title>
</head>

<body>

<p>Paragraph</p>
<p>Paragraph</p>
<p>Paragraph</p>
<p>Paragraph</p>


</body>
</html>

Most editors like Dreamweaver also have a clean up word HTML function, though its far from perfect.

Do you want to keep the formatting?

Problem about notepad an inserting HTML is that the documents are hundreds of pages long, so that is too much work.

Copying to Wordpad, then saving as RTF, then opening in Word and saving as HTML cut it down to 10,700 lines though. That's a 50% reduction.

I don't have dreamweaver. Or any other good tools.

Any other thoughts?

Ah, yes, that is somewhat important, as well as the images.

It's not like Word puts out bad HTML. It just uses CSS for formatting.

I think that might be the funniest thing I've read all day.

"It's a feature."

Yeah, and it combines CSS with XML which gets crazy. I hate it. It's just silly because it makes the document much larger than it needs to be, and then the pages take a long time to load. On the local network (100mbs) it takes almost 30 seconds to load for me. Imagine someone outside my network, or god forbid on dial up, trying to download this.

I don't understand how you plan on keeping the formatting by taking out the styles. The XML is mainly used for metadata, IIRC.

Formatting is not an issue, as I already have a stylesheet for the site. Getting it down in size is.

Guess what I found!!!

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=EN

Strips all formatting from Word converted HTML documents. Made my previous one word into this:

Code:
<div>
<table cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 hspace=0 vspace=0 width=57 height=15>
 <tr>
  <td valign=top align=left height=15>
  <p align=right>Medium</p>
  </td>
 </tr>
</table>
</div>
I can live with that. Thanks for getting me thinking about XML, I just searched Google for Word export "without XML" and found a match right away.

W00t! Now I can go home!
