I've seen the "HTML" from Word 2000; it would be better described
as Microsoft RTF in XML.  The actual example was a paper on web
accessibility which had unfortunately put on the web by an organisation
that insisted on using Word, in spite of the author's protestations.

It is not a pretty sight and only pays token lip service to HTML.
I actually tore it to pieces as an example of how not to write accessible
HTML before the author pointed out that it was not how they had written
it.  It had an extreme bloat factor, amongst other things, such as,
I seem to remember, simulating list items with explicit layout.
