the HTML from Word is readable (and hence editable), but it is also
unnecessarily detailed (to the point that i usually delete about 70-80%
of the code in HTML files that i make with Word). I usually add scripts,
applets, etc. using Notepad (because Word doesn't handle this sort of
stuff very well), so i have to look at all that unnecessary code (wasting
that much hard drive space really bugs me when i have to look at it,
otherwise i don't really care because i have a 96gb hard drive). AFAICT,
the code generated by word is 100% compatible with Internet Explorer.
compatibility with Netscape (4.7 and 6.2) is rather limited (quite a few
problems, but i edit the code anyway so i catch most of them).
