Word 2000 html pages controlled by CSS?

I got around 200 documents that are created by various managers/supervisors and leads within my company. All of them are converted into html pages and are displayed in iframe. Is there any way I can use iframe properties to override Word 2000's (MASSIVE) surplus tags? Like using!important property? That way I will be able to match the document style to the corporate's intranet web design?

Thanks In Advance,

Scott

If you're dealing with Word generated pages, I'm afraid there's nothing better you can do than to completely redo the pages. Word puts so much code bloat and other junk in there!

I agree about bloatware Program. The problem is there are 200 documents... hmm.... *thinking*

Html-kit can strip Word 2000's surplus tags out of html, but I'm thinking about creating a new plug-in that finds the common tags used by Word 2000 i.e. <div class="Section1"> "mso-whatever", removes them and replace with simple tags such as <p> etc...

If we pre-load the standard <style> into html-kit, the batch processing would make our lives so much easier!

Save yourself the trouble... Microsoft already offers a free downloadable program that does much the same thing. I believe it's called "MS Office HTML Filter". It's a very small program and available on their MS Office site. I've used it and it strips about 95% of the junk out of pages that were created with MS Word. Also works on HTML pages created with MS Excel.

I downloaded that program and tried to use it. Still have surplus tags in the file.

Anybody else?
