well, it's a curious thing. I DO the html export but for some reason
although the file IS an html file, it makes into ".doc". I need to check

had little to do with the COMPLETE design of I do know
a LOT about  bare bones html though. CSS, maybe not so much, but enough to
get by  most of the time. :)
