Thanks for the tip. I have a question about this tool, though:

According to 
http://www.cse.ohio-state.edu/~gurari/TeX4ht/mn-commands.html#QQ1-3-10:

The OpenDocument code employs MathML for formulas, and XSL-FO for
formatting. It can be viewed by the OpenOffice word processor which,
in turn, can export RTF and other MicroSoft-based formats (see also,
Maarten Wisse, "Hacking TeX4ht for XML Output: The Road toward a TeX
to Word Convertor", MAPS 28 (2002), pp. 28-35).

Does this mean tex4ht requires OpenOffice to create MS Word .doc
files?
