Word2cleanhtml cleans up HTML pasted from Word documents. It applies filters to fix various things that Microsoft Office puts in its HTML and gives you a well formatted result that you can paste directly into a web page or content editing system.
All documents converted to HTML are secured in transit via TLS. The HTML conversion process is completely automated and nothing is stored on the server. We never see your document and no copy is kept of your data.
We use Google analytics to help us monitor usage. Personally identifiable information, for example your IP address, is excluded.
If you file a bug report then the details you choose to include (your email, and optionally a copy of your document) is emailed to us. We only use this information for the purpose of diagnosing and fixing bugs on this site.
Help! Where have my fonts/colours/effects gone?
Most formatting information is stripped out, leaving just the content and the structure (headings, paragraphs, lists etc). This is intentional. The way Microsoft Word adds font and colour information is generally not appropriate for web or ebook publishing. If you are going to use the HTML in a website you should create separate stylesheets that add the styles you want.
Is there a desktop/offline/app version?
I don't have the resources to produce and support a desktop version at the moment.
