Use Gmail to Convert Word Docs to HTML (O’Reilly

by Derrick Story

If you have a MS Word doc that you want to convert to HTML, the last thing you’d ever use is the “Save as Web Page…” command in Word. Talk about terrible code! Instead, you can send the attachment to your Gmail account and use the “View as HTML” link. Once the page is displayed in your browser, go to “View Source” and copy the code. Most of it is very clean and quite useable. I’m surprised however, that Google doesn’t use the XHTML version of the break tag…
