Editor editor = new Editor("Sample.docx");

// Open document for edit and obtain EditableDocument
EditableDocument original = editor.edit();

// Obtain all-embedded HTML from it
String allEmbeddedInside = original.getEmbeddedHtml();

// If necessary, obtain pure HTML-markup, CSS, images and other resources in separate form

// Whole HTML-markup, without any resources
String completeHtmlMarkup = original.getContent();

// Only HTML->BODY content, useful for most of WYSIWYG-editors
String onlyInnerBody = original.getBodyContent();

// All CSS stylesheets
List<CssText> stylesheets = original.getCss();

// All images, including raster and vector, but without CSS gradients
List<IImageResource> images = original.getImages();
