Hey guys,

On a bored whim I decided to pit Word's html exporting capabilities against 
my hand-editing of a webpage in Textpad. Here are the results:


I simply wrote "Hello World" on the page and exported it, and then made the 
identical page with Textpad. Looking at the two pages they LOOK identical - 
right down to the title. The difference?

The Word version is 2k and 60 lines long - thats right, 60 lines, to put 
"Hello World" on the page and title. Mine is but 9 lines.

This is just for a very simple page. Imagine laying out a very complex one, 
with tables and pictures and all of that. EWWWWWWW.
