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

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

Earlier documents produced by moneydance as recently as last month

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.
