large (200k) html file with nested tables does not load into MS Word

I'm using  standard content disposition headers (ie:"application/vnd.ms-word") to create the page, but the page (which loads fine in html) either does not load at all in word, or, it takes Much too long (minutes) to load.   I have tried:
- saving the file and loading from disc
- stripping out generate javascript
- removing headers and footers
- testing the resulting html for properly formed tables and such
- bypassing the fusebox stucture
- stripping out tabs
- stripping out hidden tags
- stripping out CRs
Does anyone have any experience in this?  I'm reusing existing code, so I'm stuck with the level of table nesting (yeah, yeah, I know, use stylesheets for presentation)

Hmm, thanks for the link COBOLdinosaur.... my problem was actually the opposite direction.  The generated HTML from the application was not being imported into Word correctly..

Solution...
 I beat it to death and the final answer was that the existing templates that I was importing had form tags and input tags in them... When they displayed, they looked nice, but it KILLED Word to try to understand them.  I could hear a lot of disk thrashing as Word needed way more memory than the 256meg on the machine.  So, the result was to go into all the templates and conditionally comment out all the >FORM and >INPUT tags when I needed to import them for printing..  Time went from several minutes (if ever) back to a few seconds as it should have been.

Thanks,
- jack
