Has anyone come across of a software or script that can convert a word doc into SEO friendly minisite? I did some searching on the internet but most doc2html converters are rudimentary.
I open them in Word, save them as HTML.
Then I open them in DreamWeaver, which has a menu item you can select that cleans up the Word HTML (which is crap)--and it's configurable in a number of ways.
Once I've done that I have clean code that I can use in a template.
I wonder though how to handle equations. Most of my docs are my academic notes, and they have all sorts of equations. It will be interesting to see how Dreamweaver handles those.
But... for a quick workaround, you could try OpenOffice
I just ran a very quick experiment using OOo writer to save (as HTML) an old and rather complicated, 18-page word.doc file that had a variety of headers, regular paragraphs, tables nested within tables, bulleted lists and images
It failed the w3c validator (as HTML 4.0 Transitional) for only FOUR reasons:
Not perfect either... so... I still agree with omegaman66 above
