    As we all know, MS Word exports crappy, dirty, weird html.

    anyone know a tool (preferably free) that cleans it up, and just uses lots of nice

    p tags
    h1 tags
    ol tags

    etc

    and none of the other fluff?

    Thanks!

    Ah thanks guys i figured it out.

    Doing a direct copy and paste from the Microsoft Word Doc directly to Dreamweaver CS4 (operating in split screen designer mode), will copy all of the MS Word Crap and, forunately, Dreamweave AUTOMATICALLY strips down the HTML tags to their route - e.g. completely removing MS Word formatting.

    This is a VERY beneficial trick - as many programs - (e.g. MS Frontpage, notepad, text editors, Ms HTML convertor) - will leave this tag info in.

    Thanks
