Is there some clever way to import at least a basic subset of HTML into 
into a Mathematica notebook?  Does Wolfram Research intend to add such 
capability to the Import[] function anytime soon (e.g., as a version 4.x 

My motivation, BTW, is to convert some MSWord documents, by way of HTML, 
into notebooks.  I consider the ascii/unicode notebook format to be a 
durable archival format for my important working docs.  Why not stop at 
HTML?  I want "live", not "dead" documents, i.e. the ability to compute 
math and graphics therein alongside the dead text.
