It certainly works in Word 2002 (XP). Just to head off yet another question. It is easy to try.

Nope, LO does BeanShell, JavaScript (not Java), Python and LibreOffice Basic, which has a VBA Compatibility option, but the the VBA macros will still need som tweaking to run (I also prefer the original Microsoft VBA - probably because I've done macros in Word for over 15 years (back then VBA was an Excel-only thing, the Word macros was rather different - ah, those memories ...), but only just "dipped my toes" in LibreOffice, and don't find it very intuitive compared to VBA.

But to conclude: Toxaris' brilliant macro will not run as-is - but it is probably doable with a little effort. (Any LibreOffice macromakers around here ?) It should be LibreOffice, OpenOffice has a sort of Basic too, but it is not up to par with LO, and the Apache developer team may be brilliant, but they're not fast ...

Regards,

Kim

Hi Tox:
I download your file but I get lost on the other steps.
Should I create a style sheet?
Could you be patient and explain step by step?
I really appreciate it. Thanks.
I try to import with "filtered html" but is a mess.
Look at this:
<p class="MsoListParagraphCxSpFirst" style="margin-left:0in"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;" xml:lang="ES-TRAD">&nbsp;</span></p>

<p class="MsoListParagraphCxSpLast" style="margin-left:0in"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;" xml:lang="ES-TRAD">Vivir en Miami Dade County y trabajar en Miami Dade College suponen convivir a diario con personas de toda América Latina y el Caribe, que llegaron a Estados Unidos en busca de seguridad y prosperidad y terminaron asentándose en una ciudad que es hoy más latina que anglosajona.</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;line-height:115%; font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;" xml:lang="ES-TRAD">Miami Dade es uno de los condados de Estados Unidos que más alta representación demográfica de latinos muestra en comparación con el número total de habitantes. El Censo de 2010 indicaba que el 70% de los habitantes de Miami Dade County son de origen hispano. En el Miami Dade College más del 80% de los estudiantes tienen igual procedencia.</span></p>

<p class="MsoListParagraphCxSpFirst" style="margin-left:0in"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;" xml:lang="ES-TRAD">En Miami cohabitan, como en cualquier urbe latinoamericana, el empresario hispano exitoso y acaudalado con otros emigrados humildes, como el trabajador de un restaurante, el profesor de una escuela o universidad, los artistas y locutores de la radio y TV local hispana y los refugiados recién llegados de países donde ocurren desastres naturales, o donde dictaduras arbitrarias los empujan a buscar mejores perspectivas en otro país. Miami es una suerte de “Ellis Island hispano” de EEUU a inicios del nuevo milenio.</span></p>

I don't know what you did, but you did not use my macro. That output cannot come out of it. This seems regular filtered HTML output from Word.

You need to run the macro in order to have the clean output. A stylesheet needs to be provided by you, the macro will not create it.

You can also try my add-in. It has much more features and can prepare an ePUB. The ePUB needs to be touched up (or at least I think so), but the start is there. That one will also provide a simple stylesheet or you can provide your own.

Thanks, everything works fine. But I have one question:

Is possible to keep scene changes from original docx
Example:
Test line 1. Test line 1. Test line 1. Test line 1.

Test line 2. Test line 2. Test line 2. Test line 2.

I always get:

Test line 1. Test line 1. Test line 1. Test line 1.
Test line 2. Test line 2. Test line 2. Test line 2.

Hi, jation:

You know, when you use the macro, it will indicate scene-breaks (like what you've displayed) with a "[scbreak]" which you can optionally highlight in Red. I leave them in, and then regex them out, using the correct style for the following paragraph, in either the output HTML or the output ePUB (whichever way you go).

Does that help? I actually find the [scbreak] indicator more useful than simply leaving an extra empty paragraph which would have to be coded properly to work in any event.

HTH,
Hitch

Depends. If it done via margins, then no. I do not check that kind of formatting at all. If it is done by a simple enter, then yes.
However, there is another way. If you have that, you probably also have named styles. You can retain those stylenames in the HTML. If you then also setup the margins in your stylesheet, the margins are retained.

I would actually recommend not using the macro anymore, but the add-in if you can. That has many more features and will be updated every now and then.

OOOPS!

Sorry--I answered about the wrong program of Toxaris'. My bad. I clicked here from my CP and didn't realize that this was about the clean HTML code, as opposed to the ePUB Tools program. @jation: please ignore my last, but it's accurate about Toxaris' ePUB Tools program.

Sorry again,
Hitch

Hi Toxaris: I took your advice, downloaded Transform_html2.8.eng.bas, and installed it in Normal.dot. But I get a syntax error on the very first line! Word doesn't like the word Attribute. Am I meant to delete the first 3 lines and start right in on the first Sub?

You can delete the Attribute line if you want, it is just name the file right. The other lines I would not delete to prevent issues.

However, I would advise not using the macro at all to be honest. I don't actively maintain it anymore. If you can, I advise you to look at my add-in. It has much, much, much more features and can create an ePUB directly as final step. The add-in is maintained and improved regularly. An update can even be expected within a week (I just need to update the manual before the release).
Be aware that it will only work if you work on Windows and have Office 2007 or later.

Thanks, Toxaris. Hitch emailed me directly with the same advice so I downloaded the manual yesterday! I'll keep an eye peeled for the new version and I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and move to a ribbon version of Office.
