    Gotta disagree with you there Sampy. The HTML formatting we are complaining about is most certainly NOT a feature.

    Let's put it this way, if Word moved your paragraphs around on the page every time you looked at the document in "Print Preview" mode would fixing that be a bug fix or a new feature. Are you claiming that "Doesn't mess up your code." is a feature? It's analogous to a bug in the IDE that would remove the semi-colons from all your statements or move your buttons to different locations on the form in WinForms class when you switch back and forth from design and code view. Actually it's worse than that because it sometimes makes the page incompatible with the DOCTYPE.
