Well, which version of Word? And which type of HTML output? (The latest
versions of Word can save "HTML" in many different ways, none of them clean,
but some much "dirtier" than others. The worst is when a ton of XML tags are
embedded so that Word can essentially re-create the original .DOC file.)

But then, I'm not sure many people use Word for a HAT anymore, unless they
are still developing plain ol' WinHelp.
