Someone asked a question a few days ago about getting a notebook into Word (I've tossed the original query). The responses I saw were less than satisfying - things like printing to file and opening the postscript. I recently had the opportunity to experiment with Mathematica export to html, 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.... Gerry F.
