Shows how to omit headers/footers when saving a document to HTML.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Header and footer types.docx");

// This document contains headers and footers. We can access them via the "HeadersFooters" collection.
Assert.AreEqual("First header", doc.FirstSection.HeadersFooters[HeaderFooterType.HeaderFirst].GetText().Trim());

// Formats such as .html do not split the document into pages, so headers/footers will not function the same way
// they would when we open the document as a .docx using Microsoft Word.
// If we convert a document with headers/footers to html, the conversion will assimilate the headers/footers into body text.
// We can use a SaveOptions object to omit headers/footers while converting to html.
HtmlSaveOptions saveOptions =
    new HtmlSaveOptions(SaveFormat.Html) { ExportHeadersFootersMode = ExportHeadersFootersMode.None };

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "HeaderFooter.ExportMode.html", saveOptions);

// Open our saved document and verify that it does not contain the header's text
doc = new Document(ArtifactsDir + "HeaderFooter.ExportMode.html");

Assert.IsFalse(doc.Range.Text.Contains("First header"));
