  • Are you (or anyone) able to suggest or recommend any of those programs that convert Word HTML to W3C compliant HTML and do you find that email marketers (like very small design companies or those DIYers) have used these succesfully?

  • jennifer, demoroniser at http://www.fourmilab.ch/webtools/demoroniser/ is one of the classic tools that attempts to fix up Word HTML output.
    It’s written in perl, so it’ll run on pretty much any system (with a bit more effort on Windows) and would be fairly easy to integrate into a design company or ESP workflow. It cleans up some of the more problematic issues (like smart quotes and invalid HTML). The end result is usually still invalid HTML, but tends to render a lot better than unmodifed Word output.
    There are several other tools, online and for purchase, that’ll do much the same thing, some better, many worse.
    Much, much better though is to not use Word to generate HTML at all – it’s just the wrong tool for it. http://webdesign.about.com/od/htmleditors/tp/aatpfreewyswin.htm has links to several free HTML editors for Windows that might be worth a look.
