# This code is designed to cleanup Word HTML to a very great extent.
# It is used at Radio NZ to cleanup documents created in Word prior to
# parsing them, line by line, to extract content.
# The Word content is pasted into WYSIWYG which is then HTTP POSTed into
# the app where the string is cleaned by this code.
# We add new lines after block elements because the next stage is a line-based
# parser
View html_parser_docs.rb
# This code is used to 'line parse' schedules that are create in MS Word.
# It build on the gist http://gist.github.com/552955
# Once the HTML is cleaned up in core, it is passed into a class
# based on the type of document.
# Each class works through a schedule document line-by-line, determining
# the context - what is the day and event
# These events are stored and imported into the main CMS.
