There is an HTML import plugin which tries to import HTML using libxml2's
HTML parser. It's not very good because I never got round to finishing it.
However, I have started work on a new plugin which uses libtidy to
pre-parse HTML & convert it to XHTML - I shall be working on this during

I am very interested in any valid XHTML documents which AbiWord cannot
import. CSS support is an entirely different question. The answer is a
resounding 'perhaps eventually' :-) It's certainly something I would like
to support, but I don't know when I'll get round to it.
There's an important question here: are you sure you need AbiWord to
support CSS import? I'd really like to hear exactly why you think you do.
