Not only do they look terrible, the HTML is terrible too... a total mess.
I tried a Save as HTML with Word 2000 (preview release) a few months back. The HTML it made was completely riddled with CSS and XML. A simple one pager became a 25KB document. The page didn't look well AT ALL in Netscape 4, although it looked half-decent in IE4. Looking at the HTML it was pretty clear that it was totally groomed for IE5.
When someone gives me a word file, I:
In Frontier, I paste the code into a WP-Text object,
In the QuickScript window, I execute:
" + string.replaceAll(wp.getText(), "\r\n\r\n", "\r\r
") + "")
Paste into Dreamweaver
Re-Apply the necessary styles (bold, headings, italics, colours, etc)
Convert to 3.x
Select All (HTML)
Paste back into Frontier
Remove everything outside (and including) the BODY tag.
Needless to say, I really appreciate it when people give me plain text to work with :-)
