Are there any utilities out there that can convert Word Docs to HTML, such that the HTML page would not be dependent on MS Word but would still look like the orginal Word doc?

Hi knowlton,

I don't think you'll get it much better than Word saving as HTML.

If you want to get it exact, you could use the original Word document as a link, and supply a link to a Word-viewer on Mcrosoft for those who don't have Word (it's like embedding .pdf,  - just better ;-)

Kind regards,
Sven
