Here is an example regular expression that someone on this group gave me. It
gives everything between the body tags.
$html_text = '
Blah Blah Blah Blah
echo $html_text;

Here is a class that removes un-needed word 2000 HTML tags:

If you need the styling you will need to do an extra regular expression to
get out of the head and perhaps put it into a file.
If you don't need styling I would recomment parsing the document itself and
removing all the class="" and style="" attributes
