Microsoft Word from Office 2000 `HTML' fails to validate

Surely this is a FAQ, but I've just found that the `HTML' output of
Microsoft Word doesn't validate with either the W3C or WDG validators:

<html xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"

<meta http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta name=ProgId content=Word.Document>
<meta name=Generator content="Microsoft Word 9">
<meta name=Originator content="Microsoft Word 9">

I've searched the archive for `microsoft word' and `microsoft html'
without finding any article which addresses this matter directly.
