If your only reason to use Word 7.0 is to create an HTML version of the
document, have you considered using Internet Assistant with Word 6.0?
It's a free plugin available from Microsoft (
that converts Word documents to HTML and provides basic HTML editing
functions. It's not nearly as full-featured as an HTML editor, but it
could save you the expense of upgrading your version of Word.
