You have the possibility to finetune htmlArea to nearly perfection. Some 
* You can configure htmlArea to clean out every not wanted tag, style 
and attribute when copying in text from Word, OpenOffice etc. The 
result, clean HTML, somehow easy to read, but not perfect.
* You can remap tags if necessary
* You can make necessary block styles, text styles to give editors 
exactly the level of control they need. Controll

I haven't found any solutions to get the html in easy readable format.

If you finetune htmlArea, the editors probably never has to use the 
Toogle HTML Source, and every content element will look like it should.
