Judging from the excess spacing between the "2.2.1" and the H3 title, I suspect that your Word file has a tab set in there. I believe replacing the tab with one or two spaces should import the file without the indent.
As to the font (span) tagging, are you sure that your Heading 3 style in Word is the original, default Heading 3, and not some re-styled Heading 3 based on Normal or something else, or a "Heading 3 + Font: 7 pt, Times New Roman", which would indicate inline modification of the style rather than a global replacement of settings for the style? I've never seen RH add span tagging unless it encounters non-standard styles in the base document.
Select a test .doc file. Before importing it to RH, try these:
- Use Format Painter in Word to manually re-style any non-standard paragraphs.
- Do not attach a .css to the Word file, only to the resulting RH topic.
Do you see a difference?
Thanks to both of you for responding. The tabbing was not a problem, but your suggestion to tinker with a small test file helped me to uncover the problem. Turned out Microsoft was "helping" me. I was indeed using conventional Word headings that I changed to conform to the desired formatting. Unfortunately, these are numbered headings and the selected style right-justifed some numbers and left justified others. My bad for not realizing this. But, as I altered the heading styles, for example .5inch left margin and click OK, Word would actually change this value to something else. It's a little hard to explain. I only noticed this when I reopened the sytle definition. What can I say, I miss Frame.
