HTML Converter

I am having trouble finding a program that will convert word 2003 documents into a clean HTML. I do not need to EDIT HTML.....I need to CONVERT word documents INTO HTML----cleanly!!!!

Can you help and recommend a program that does this?

So far, a few I have tried put the spacing all over the place or give me wingdings as sample.

Thank you so very much!

Converting Word doc to html.

The best you can do:
1. File>Save As html
2. Run tidy from with the word-2000 option to clean some of the junk.

But it stays rather dirty. I would say Word is unsuited as a html-editor. But why should you? The best way to publish a Word document on the web is by converting it to pdf.

...copy and paste contents of Word document to the message box of Outlook Express or Windows Mail, set to View>source edit. Then click at the source edit tab.

You mentioned that you do not want to edit the HTML, but if you have images, you will need to edit their source reference...
