Actually all I was thinking is to save the document as HTML. This is a 
cheap and mindless act.

The current spec source in in Word. It has several problems due to 
limitations in Word for large documents. Longer term I would like to 
move away from Word. I was thinking of Open Office which is the basis 
for the Open Office Format TC:


Important criterea for choice of formats are:

-Open format (ideally XML)

-WYSIWYG Editors that are useable and reliable

Open Office meets each of the above requirements. Software is freely 
available from:


Also since it can open Word formats migration from Word to Open Office 
would be relatively painless.
