Ignoring MS Office Smart Tags during convert?

I've got a huge html document which contains MS Office Smart Tags. i.e.

<st1:Street w:st="on"><st1:address w:st="on">University Place</st1:address></st1:Street>

When Calibre converts this to epub the formatting goes a little wonky (University Place would appear on it's own line or something similar).

Is there a way to get Calibre to ignore these tags all together?

Thanks!

If you have MSWord, you could try the following :-

1. Open the HTML file with Word.

2. Then File Save-As type WebPage-Filtered.

This should give you a new HTML file without the MS smart tags.

Thanks.

I've only got linux available (and no Word).

I could write a regex and use sed to strip them out but since the files are passed to me already in a zip file, I bring them in directly to Calibre and convert to epub.

I guess I'm kinda hoping that Calibre can handle this on it's own. Maybe I'm just being too lazy!

You can put regexps into the remove header and footer options to remove whatever you like.
