Convert DOCX to Multi-page Styled HTMLXMLmind Word To XML v1.1.0 (March 15, 2016): It's now possible to convert a DOCX document to the following styled HTML formats: multi-page styled HTML, Web Help, EPUB 2.

In order to generate these new formats, we need to automatically split the source DOCX document into parts. A new part is created each time a paragraph having an outline level less than or equal to specified split-before-level parameter is found in the source. An outline level is an integer between 0 (e.g. style Heading 1) and 8 (e.g. style Heading 9). The default value of parameter split-before-level is 0, which means: for each Heading 1, create a new page starting with this Heading 1.
