(I just joined this list recently... here's my first post)

A few suggestions, none perfect:
1. To help resolve issues with Word or find out if others have had exactly
this problem, check out the info at
2. Instead of converting docs from Word to HTML, convert from Word to RTF or
TXT, then to HTML
3. Standardize your company's employees on a browser that will support
XML-based docs such as IE 4+ or (presumably) Netscape 6 (which is due out in a
month or so)
