the website broke after saving as webpage with MS Word 2010

I edited the webpage with Word2010 and saved as HTML.  It is now broke.  some shows missing in Chrome, ie9 opens forever and never really opens, ie7 reports the add-on failed to open, etc.

It shows up fine on my ie9; but then this pc I'm on has admin privilege... did something happen on the iis 7?  How do I check?

How do I go about fixing this?

bad, bad idea to edit a live web site with Word. Html produced by Word is not exactly standard compliant, never mind cross-browser compatibility.

Use a proper html editing tool instead of Word.

Exactly which bits you need to clean up is hard to say without seeing the code.

Word reformatted the file as a print oriented file which it always does.  I hope you had a backup.  You need to use a text editor or 'code' editor to work on HTML files.

I have restored from my backup and used code editor.  I still can't accept that WORD 2010 provides saving in HTML which does not work flawlessly, at least under Internet Explorer Browser.

Thanks for the points but no version of Microsoft Word has ever saved to HTML as acceptable web pages.  They are saved with all that it takes for printing (through Word) without any consideration of what web browsers require.  When I get Word files with content for a web site, the first thing I do is "Save as..." plain text.  By the way, Microsoft Publisher is even worse in the files I've received.  One version of Publisher had a flaw where it would create a 1.5MB file where it should have been 10KB.
