The Office HTML Filter is a tool you can use to remove Office-specific markup tags embedded in Office 2000 documents saved as Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). When you create an HTML document in Office 2000, Office-specific markup tags are embedded in it. These tags help "round-trip" the document for editing purposes. For example, if you create the document in Word 2000 and save it as HTML, the code embedded in the document allows you to re-open the document in Word 2000 and use the same features you originally used to create the page.
- You have more control over which types of markup tags are removed.
- You can export a cascading style sheet (.css) file based on a Word 2000 document or an Office HTML file.
- You can copy any fragment of a Word document as HTML and paste it into an HTML or text editor as filtered HTML markup. For example, instead of typing complex HTML tags to create nested tables, create them by using the Draw Table tool in Word. Then select them and click Copy as HTML on the Edit menu to create a compact HTML copy of the tables.
- The Office HTML Filter is even more efficient at removing redundant HTML markup from an Office HTML file.
