Because anything between <html>...</html> is meant to stand alone, it is 
its own page...

the CONTENT of that is its own, and html defines the bounds of the page, 
and in html docs is the :root.

<object> allows placing an external object into the page...your Word 
document that is authored in Word is just that, and external document, 
this would satisfy both the semantic and logistical meanings of what you 
are doing imo.  And would actually lessen the needs of your malformed 
insertion program.

Where in your ideal world you could take the html word hands you and 
"fix it up" rather than needing to just "place" it there.
