MS Word and Web pages

I must get this document, prepared by someone else in Word, onto our office Web site either tonight or first thing tomorrow. It's a short bit of text, then 2, count 'em, 2 graphics. Because I don't have the graphics in any other form and Word does not lightly let go of graphics which it has gotten into its hot little phosphors, I asked Word for a Web page of the document.

I got out the expected junk-filled .html file. A 'filelist.xml' and an oledata.mso. And 5 image files: 2 gifs, a pct, a png, and a jpg. The 2 gifs (image001 and image003) are identical--336x526 pixel copies of the first graphic. The pct is a 1400x2192 pixel version of the same. The png is the second graphic, at 1733x3141, and the jpg is the second graphic at 334x605. I'm sure this makes sense to some MS programmer out there....

Oh, and to no one's surprise, I'm sure, the Word html file is 12k, mine is 4k.
