HTML files don't display properly

When you view the word exported html files in your browser try  
resizing the window really small and see if it messes up the lines.  
If so then that is because Word set them as dynamic resizing. I have  
had that happen. In your Rev field then the lines are wrong because  
the field is a different size.

Is that the case?
