PDFs are probably a better solution. They are cross-platform compatible, and
most browsers come with support built-in. This lets most users view them
without having to download the Word Viewer. Another advantage: all
formatting is preserved, no matter what browser, screen resolution, or
color-depth the user has. This can be an advantage if the appearance is
important to you.
If you're set on using HTML, I suggest purchasing a copy of Dreamweaver from
Macromedia. The program is one of the few HTML generators that preserves
your coding if you make changes with a text editor. It also includes a nifty
feature that strips out all the extraneous junk Word generates when it
creates a web page - which is what you're looking for.

She asked, "Are there any special applications you use, is there a
work-around for the way Word generates extra HTML tags, etc."
