[sword-devel] bible module from Word text?

I've had good success using OpenOffice.org to export HTML (or maybe it 
was XHTML). It produces cleaner HTML than Office itself. However, if you 
export with Office and use HTML Tidy, as Sebastian suggests, tidy does 
have a special mode for cleaning up documents exported from Office.

The problem with Word documents really isn't Word itself. When I 
converted that Arabic Bible from a set of Word docs, it was fairly 
trivial. The problem is mostly Word-users, who often only think about 
presentation and don't go to the trouble of using styles (which probably 
would have saved them time in the long run).
