Hey Paul, I've tried doing the same thing and couldn't get anything to work... And cleaning these bad boys by hand can get boring, quick...

I did find a great site: http://www.textism.com/resources/cleanwordhtml/ Fantastic site for cleaning html files...

Make sure you save you're .doc file with the 'Save as webpage' command and make sure Website Filtered is selected in the drop down menu at the bottom of the dialogue box... Then run that .htm file through http://www.textism.com/resources/cleanwordhtml/ and then slap it around with tidy.

Kinda wack way of doing it, but it's saved me allot of time over the past few years...

I just got Office 2003 yesterday, so we'll see how well this works with it... <g>

Subject: [BUG] Namespace support and Microsoft Word 2002 on XP


hi all,

i've got a microsoft word 2002 file created on xp. the following
namespaces are causing tidy (1st july 2003) to fail (with the word-2000
option):

line 15 column 1 - Error: <o:smarttagtype> is not recognized!
line 17 column 1 - Error: <o:smarttagtype> is not recognized!
line 19 column 1 - Error: <o:smarttagtype> is not recognized!
line 686 column 56 - Error: <st1:country-region> is not recognized!
line 686 column 76 - Error: <st1:place> is not recognized!
line 688 column 61 - Error: <st1:country-region> is not recognized!

i get the (exact) same results with 1st september 2003 version (current
as of this writing).

these namespaces are defined on the html element along with some others:

<html
  xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml"
  xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"
  xmlns:w="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:word"
  xmlns:st1="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags"
  xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40">

i've also tried with some extra options:

bare: yes
clean: yes
drop-proprietary-attributes: yes

but none help.

i've read lee passey[1]'s comment (where there's mention of *another*
namespace "dt"), but there doesn't seem to be a useful followup on that
report other than a related sourceforge bug report[2].

as i workaround i can do:

$ tidy --config tidy.conf --new-blocklevel-tags "o:p,o:smarttagtype,st1:country-region,st1:place,st1:city" imm2002.html
 
does anyone know of a canonical list elements that might occur in these
microsoft namesapces? i've found little with google. :(

here's my tidy conf:
---8<---
char-encoding: utf8
doctype: strict
drop-empty-paras: yes
enclose-block-text: no
enclose-text: yes
indent: no
literal-attributes: yes
logical-emphasis: yes
markup: yes
output-xhtml: yes
quiet: yes
quote-ampersand: yes
quote-marks: no
quote-nbsp: no
show-warnings: no
tidy-mark: no
uppercase-tags: no
word-2000: yes
wrap: 0
--->8---

and the offending file:

---8<---
<html xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml"

<h3>Subsequent Procedures:<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span></h3>

<p class=MsoBodyText>The Home Office should acknowledge receipt of the

months to process an application made by post. If you have applied in person,
at one of the Public Enquiry Offices (PEO) listed on the form, you may receive
a decision on the same day, provided you take all the correct documents with
you.</p>

<p class=MsoBodyText>You can remain in the <st1:country-region><st1:place>UK</st1:place></st1:country-region>
while you are awaiting a decision. You have leave to remain on the same basis
as before the application was made.</p>

<p class=MsoBodyText>If the application is refused, you have 10 working days in
which to lodge an appeal. This must be done using the appeal form included with
the refusal letter. You should seek a qualified representative who can advise
you and accompany you to the appeal hearing. Always find a representative well
before the hearing. <b>You are entitled to remain in the country until the
appeal is heard.</b></p>

<p class=MsoBodyText>If the application is granted, you will usually be given a
further 12 months leave to remain in the <st1:country-region><st1:place>UK</st1:place></st1:country-region>.
Your passport will be stamped accordingly. During this time, you may travel
outside the <st1:country-region><st1:place>UK</st1:place></st1:country-region>
for short periods but there is no guarantee that you will be able to re-enter.
You may have to prove each time that you still intend to study and that you
satisfy all the rules, so always take proof with you.</p>

<p class=MsoBodyText>If your course is for longer than 12 months, you will
usually have to re-apply each year that you wish to remain in the <st1:country-region><st1:place>UK</st1:place></st1:country-region>.
Each time you will have to show that you are still studying and that you are
making satisfactory progress. If you do fail exams, you may be allowed an
extension in order to re-sit, as long as you can provide a satisfactory
explanation.</p>
