Problem with Microsoft Word and Tidy

Don't know if this a bug, but it stops me from using Tidy. Microsoft Word 
does many things to HTML documents, many of which Tidy does fix, including 
changing "\" to "/" in url's. However, in most of my tables, Word insists 
on putting in the following:

<![if !supportEmptyParas]>&nbsp;<![endif]><o:p></o:p>

I don't know how it gets there. When I remove it, it puts it back. Tidy 
calls these errors that must be fixed before it generates new cleaned up 
output. That negates the value of Tidy.
