As per previous posts:
Is there any way to apply a style sheet to a html page created using a
Word template?

I don't see the need for a CSS. If you save a Word doc as an HTML file
open it with Notepad, you'll observe that all the styles in the doc are
converted and stored as "Classes" in the HTML. A Class in a CSS or an
is tantamount to a Style in Word. This'll (in my opinion) ensure that
Word styles remain intact in the HTMLs.

Would we be asking for trouble by implementing such a system?

I don't think so. I'm maintaining a repository of resumes, which were
initially created in Word and later converted to HTML. The Word template
had headings, styles, and tables, which have been retained "as is" in

I have been converting a series of Word docs created using styles to
HTML for display on our portal. The main clean-up I have had to do
besides making sure that any illustrations are converted and fixing the
links to them involve some auto-numbered lists I had in tables. (In
fact, they were step tables.) I have not found an easy to convert
numbered lists in tables from Word to HTML without a lot of hand jive.

There may be other hidden problems in your doc set, so I would advocate
doing some testing before using this method if you have a choice.
