Everytime I create an HTML file using the built-in HTML "converters" in MS Office97, I need to open the .htm file (another annoyance courtesy of Microsoft) in NoteTab Light, and strip out all of the extra junk in the file (e.g. STYLE="vnd.ms-excel.numberformat:$#,##0") for every special number/date format produced by Excel or Access; not to mention all of the Font Face tags. By manually stripping the extra labels, I am able to get rid of several thousand bytes of extra ASCII garbage that does not add anything to my HTML. It's an extra step, but since I know that most people that look at my files are using dial-up from home connections, it is the least that I can do.
