Anyone know how to avoid the heavy overhead of style information when converting data from Word documents to FP 2000?
Since upgrading to Office 2000 and FP 2000, when I move data I get long strings of style information. This is all very well as it produces a web page very close to the original format, but the downside is large amounts of html which make for very slow pages. For example, a page with a few paragraphs of text and a simple table with 60 rows and 2 columns now produces so much code that FP notes it will download in 54 seconds at 28,8!
If you need to see an example, look at http://www.sarl.org.za/members/local/bandsurvey.htm
Obviously one solution is to save the data as .txt and then import this to FP. However, you cannot open it in Word and then copy the data, as you then get all the style defaults from Word.... You can open the .txt file in Notepad and then cut and paste into FP - This produces nice "clean" html, but you have to remove all the <br>'s.....And we completely lose any table structures we might have had in Word, which is the real reason for my question.
Any bright ideas? (aside from moving back to Office 97/FP98!!!)
