Hi, folks -

My compatriot here solved a minor problem/annoyance for our boss yesterday
and sent the following around to the whole department. We have MS Word for
Windows 95, Version 7 (part of MS Office 97), running in an NT environment.
We maintain a departmental site on the company intranet and we all access
the Internet with fair frequency, so his problem was one that several of us
had experienced.


You may already know this, but if not...

HTML documents imported into Word retain the markup language, even if the
document is saved with a Word (.doc) extension. To remove the markup
language from the document:

1. Be sure you've saved the document as a Word file, and that it's open.

2. Select menu option View.

3. Select Web Browse from the drop-down list. The document will no longer
show the markup language, but will appear bolded with a larger font. A new
Web Browse toolbar is added to the screen.

4. At this point, you have two options available to remove the markup

a. Select menu option View once again. This time, select HTML Edit.
The text will return to normal without the markup language, and the Web
Browse toolbar will close.

b. Or you can select the Switch to Edit View button on the Web Browse
toolbar. (The button, located on the far left side of the toolbar, shows a
yellow pencil with a small gray triangle above it.) This will also restore
your document to its normal state sans the markup language.


Hope this helps someone out there, since Word Help was useless in this
