In my last job, we had a lot of trouble with HTML Transit, and finally gave
up using it altogether. It kept choking on our Word 6.0 documents. (Yes, I
had Fast Save turned off. :-)) I'd be the first to admit I did not stay on
the line with HTML Transit Tech Support about it (I was busy, of course, and
by the time the problem developed our free technical support had run out).
Has anyone else had similar problems with HTML Transit? It generally gets
pretty good reviews on this listserv.
