HTML reprocessor: how do you get rid of bloated (obese) MS-Word (normal or filtered) HTML?

HTML reprocessor: how do you get rid of bloated (obese) MS-Word (normal or
filtered) HTML?
I just want all the fancy MS tags removed and replaced with basic ones, or
if applicable -- stripped entirely.

Style tags -- Eeek how obese these tags make HTML!
Yet, most web authoring tools (the cheap or free ones) will not help with
CSS.

Not all my website is affected, but someday it may be.

If this idea only worked for HTML ...

Most of my website code could go back to HTML 3.2, but my goal is conversion
to 4.01 STRICT + UTF-8 + EN + no local coloured tags for links...

I find it easier to work with a .doc file. I use antiword to
extract the text then mark it up in emacs.

The best way is to not use those M$ programs in the first place...
certainly not for anything to do with Web site creation.
