The HTML Filter 2.0 for Office 2000, which you can download from will
clean all the Word-specific gunk out of the HTML produced with Office 2000.
I have both Word 97 and Word 2000 on my system and the product seems to work
with both versions of Word. In fact, it got "installed" for Word 97, and I
had to manually add its template as a global template and add-in in Word
2000, which is pretty strange.

I'm currently using Word 97, and I checked Daniel's suggestion on my
documentation. Alas, there was no "Web Options" choice that I could find.

I suspect the only way to optimize HTML code generated by Word 97 is the
old-fashioned way: hand changes after the fact. If there is a better way,
I'll be all eyes. <g>
