Given that both Word and OO.o produce such lousy, uselessly cluttered
html, I'm a tad loathe to install another wp... and I really just wanted a
command line conversion tool.

As a side note, I tried quanta about 6 years ago, and that did lousy
things to my html, too (going from edit to display and back, I think it
was, unformatted the *whole* document, left justifying all, even when I
*told* it to leave formatting...), so I'm not wildly crazed with web
editing programs.

As my own personal web page reads, "this page proudly built in vi"....
