Sorry. I hit reply and that usually sends to the list (on everything 
else I'm subscribed to).

I quote from the documentation. Word-2000 - "This option specifies if 
Tidy should go to great pains to strip out all the surplus stuff 
Microsoft Word 2000 inserts when you save Word documents as "Web pages".

I reckon most people would consider <p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt 36pt;" 
class="MsoNormal"> to be surplus !! I was hoping that Tidy would get rid 
of all that stuff.

My original question was concerning configuration - is there anything 
more I can do with Tidy to get rid of the surplus Word stuff ? Am I 
making a mistake with my config file ? Have I missed something ?
