I would say yes to that.
Since LO seems to be used as a web editor - i.e. LibreOffice Writer/Web options - we should not need to remove the DOCTYPE tag from the HTML files to get it to work.

It looks like the problem is with LibreOffice interpreting DOCTYPEs. You see, every HTML is supposed to have a DOCTYPE at the top of the file, explaining what version of HTML (HTML5, HTML4.01, etc) the file uses. The file you uploaded has a DOCTYPE of HTML4.01 Transitional. Anyway, if I remove the <!DOCTYPE ...> part of the HTML file, and reopen it in LibreOffice, it works just fine, and shows the file's contents (not the source). Even switching the DOCTYPE to <!DOCTYPE html> (HTML5) causes the problem. So, in theory, if you want to view an HTML file in LibreOffice 4.2, you have to remove its <!DOCTYPE ...>, and it will work fine. Would you like an official bug to be filed so that the developers know of the problem and can try to fix it?

Strangely it does open in Abiword.

Earlier documents produced by moneydance as recently as last month open fine in LO. I have not upgraded moneydance in that time.

Having quickly opened about 20 html's the problem is limited to those produced lately by moneydance.

I haven't had time to look closely at the html source. I suppose it's possible that LO is now being more strict in its interpretation.

The work around in the short term might be to use Abiword.
