Here's the scoop as I understand it.

HTML format in Word 2000 is now a hybrid of HTML, XML, CSS, VML
(Vector Mark-up Language), JavaScript and VBScript.

What this allows you to do is save a Word document as an HTML file
without losing a lot of the formatting features available in a regular
Word document, but not supported in normal HTML. That is, you can
create a document using all of Word's formatting features, save it in
HTML format, and then reopen it as a Word document without losing
anything--something you couldn't do in Word 97.

Is this an improvement? Depends on the direction web technology takes
in the future.
