I use WORD2000, and have only seen WORD2002 once. However, it was a long
enough glance to notice that there is a "Filtered HTML" type. That's what
you need for uploading to the web.
The "Save as Web page" should be reserved for round-tripping to non-MS word
processors. It was Microsoft's attempt to highjack HTML as an internal
format for WORD. As you see, if you look at the style sheet code, it's
there to allow you to preserve all the word-processor possible but
HTML-impossible formatting. For web purposes its useless bloat.
WORD2000 users can obtain a plug-in from the Microsoft site, which does the
same job. (Search for the file "msohtmf2.exe" (MS Office HTML Filter v2)).
Apart from the main filter, it introduces some nice little tricks such as
"Copy as HTML" For example, if you find it tricky to create the raw code
for intricate patterns of nested tables, then create them in WORD and use
the "Copy as HTML" feature to paste them into NoteTab! :-)
