    1. AbiWord *can* import XHTML, and when it can't that's a bug and
       should be filed in Bugzilla.
    2. AbiWord's *experimental* HTML import plugin will attempt ordinary HTML
       using libxml2.
    3. AbiWord's new MHT/XHTML plugin has preliminary, experimental support
       for HTML import via libtidy.

    No claims have ever been made that AbiWord itself has native HTML import
