You are really going to struggle with this one. I have found
eWebEditPro to be the best for cleaning up Word because it unlike most
of the others it doesn't rely on just the facilities built into IE.
Whilst eWebEditPro's in build filters will strip out a lot of the MS
rubbish and you can fine tune it to strip out extra tags, the big
problems I find are that most Word users don't use their styles
properly so they end up using spaces or tabs for centering text or for
tabular data and also double carriage returns of adding spaces between
paragraphs - none of which translates well when converted to html.
The best thing to do is to provide content providers with a word
template with tightly controlled styles and train them to use it
