Hello,

I know that Confluence has Office Connector, which makes importing Word
docs fairly easy. I also know that that feature has some "serious bugs,"
according to this post:
http://www.techwr-l.com/archives/1309/techwhirl-1309-00143.html#.UweY__ldWXw(and
this linked list of issues:
https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/OFFCONN-18?jql=project%20%3D%20OFFCONN%20
).

I am going to import a fair number of Word docs into Confluence. I wonder
if anyone has any suggestions on how to clean up the formatting in the Word
docs so that post-import cleanup is minimized. I realize some cleanup is
probably inevitable, but any tips or tricks would be much appreciated!

Thanks!
-Ryan
