Microsoft offers a free add-on to Word 6.0a called Internet Assistant. I've just
started playing around with it, and it quite easily converts a Word document to
html by using the 'save as' command. That said, it still takes a bit of work to
make it look good and for it to take advantage of the hypertext features,
especially if the document wasn't designed with the web in mind.

It converts tables quite easily - I'm not sure how things would work if the
names in your original document where the same as the styles available in the
converted document

It's available from Microsoft. ON the web:
Or on disk if you call them up.
