None of which has anything to do with my comment, which stands:

The HTML rendering engine in Word (2007 and 2010) blows goats. MS's
decision to switch from IE to Word for the Outlook (2007 and 2010) HTML
rendering engine was brain-dead.

Here's just one page discussing why it is so bad:

Don't be silly. Market share is what counts, and 2010 still has vastly
less market share than any of the others. 2000 and 2003 probably each
have the largest market share.

As for being 'deprecated' (this is a misuse of the term) - Office XP
(release in 2002) is still not officially end of (extended) life, much
less 2003 or 2007.

This is getting way OT though...
