Check out HTML Transit from InfoAccess, as another poster suggested. It works
very well and once you set up the template that maps Word styles (you do use
styles, I hope) to HTML tags, the conversion is pretty much automatic. There
are lots of options for tailoring your output. About the only major problem
I've had with it is the lack of support for Word's character styles, which I
worked around by redefining our styles to reduce the amount of emphasis we
were using (something that we needed to do anyway).

While I use various editors (Netscape Gold and Homesite, mainly) for writing
pages, we use Word for our documents. HTML Transit is the best product I've
seen yet for converting Word files to HTML.
