One big lesson I have learned in web design is that you should never use Microsoft Word to create a website or even a web page. Yes, there are some who would tell you that it's perfectly ok to do so. Let me give you the reasons it's not:
The coding that Microsoft Word uses is not a clean code and sometimes you cannot receive HTML, XHTML, or CSS validations. Clean code is important when you are trying to update a page as well.
The coding confuses search bots when trying to index a site and add it. It will see the code and your site will get indexed, but 9 times out of 10 not the way you want it to.
The layout doesn't allows turn out the way you see it. Once it's uploaded you might have to make changes and it's just easier to create the page yourself and make those changes.
You can use notepad, online editing applications, and any of the millions of text editors out there. However, other than notepad you want to make sure it is strictly for designing web pages. Otherwise you are just making more work for yourself later.
Thanks. I thought about this the other day when I was talking to a client here at work. They put together a page and wanted us to use it for an upcoming event. Wanted to know why it wasn't exactly how they had it.
