I need to convert some very large HTML files (about 800KB, PDF equivalent about 30 pages) into MS Word. It's easy up to a point: just open in Word and resave as docx. Problem is, the resulting Word doc is more than 3MB, and takes ten minutes to open. It's nearly unusable.
One issue might be -- the HTML has an enormous number of form elements, and the converted Word doc tries to keep them live (so, for example, radio button sets continue to function as in a web browser). That is not necessary. It would be fine if they were converted just to static things. The point of the word docs is just to give reviewers a convenient format to review and comment on the text portion.
Does anyone know of -- -- a way to globally disable all the form elements in a word doc, or convert them to some static equivalent images or whatever? -- a utility that will convert HTML to Word and omit the features that cause document bloat? -- other tricks to reduce mega-bloat in large HTML files opened in Word?
