I do not know where you heard that at, but NoteTab does not
convert Word documents to HTML. Scripts can be used to clean up
the mess MS makes when converting .doc to HTML though. If I am
not mistaken, Tidy will also clean up the mess which would be a
much easier route to take.

That can be done once the .doc is converted in MS to HTML or if
you find a utility that can convert the .doc files assuming that
is the file type. Load a doc file in Word and click on File |
Save As... | HTML. If you do not see that feature, you may need
to reload your Word (or Office) and do a custom install making
sure you install the HTML stuff.

not work with them other that to replace some characters so the
file is somewhat legible. That can come in handy at times to
salvage some of the text in the document. All the formatting and
other like code is all the gobbledigook you see.
Look in View | Options | Files | and press F1 or click the Help
button for information on binary files. There are three features
