Stopping automatic ActiveX codes?

As shown elsewhere in this forum, I'm trying to modify a free template, using MS Word, to make myself a website. My skill levels at this are low.

Some of the body text refers to various place names such as "Bristol, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire".

Each time I do anything in the script editor, it adds st1:City> st1:place> at the beginning and /st1:City> /st1:place> at the end when I save it.

Doesn't worry me when I show the page in FireFox, but when I open it in IE8 I get a bleep and an ActiveX warning. This may put off some end users.

I have tried turning off the autocomplete in Tools>Options in the script editor... with no success.

Is there any way I can persuade MS Word to stop adding these codes>
