I agree with Tim's point about avoiding markup, that was one of the points I
made in my message.
The only thing I can't comment on is the HTML thing, I never used LibreOffice
or OpenOffice for my HTML. I normally use a plain text editor for that. If LO
doesn't produce clean HTML code, we could probably find a converter or HTML
cleanup utility, or get a few people to help convert.
