Hmm ... a thought just occurred to me. Just a wild guess, since I
haven't worked with Front Page at all. But recent versions of the
product might contain a bunch of "XML" (it's not real XML because it
isn't well-formed--rather, it's a bunch of XML elements embedded into
HTML); at any rate that's what they do with Office documents these days.
And it might be that you could strip all that stuff out with no ill
effects, since its purpose is to preserve formatting among Microsoft
applications; by doing that you would vastly reducing the number of

Try this: open a sample page in a text editor and glance over it. If you
see some elements with two-part names ( LETTERS COLON LETTERS ), e.g.:

  <o:foobar blabla="yaddayadda"/>

that's the psuedo-XML stuff. Look for all the colon-separated prefixes--
there might be several--and remove all elements beginning with those
prefixes, and see if you still have a recognizable page.
