and then opening the html in Word. That worked really well on some pretty 
complex notebooks. Of course, most of the formatted math is coming in as 
gifs. In fact, most of the input cells are also converted to gif. The 
beauty of this approach is that the style definitions are maintained. The 
MM styles become .css style sheets in html, which become style definition 
in word - slick. My compliments on the MM to html converter; the code 
generated looks very clean. Try opening a Word export to html to see the 
contrast. Now if we just get Mathtype to read xtml....
