Convert Word file to HTML

While my aim with the Tooth and Claw RPG is to publish it primarily as a PDF, I also want to do an HTML release. But I'd really prefer not to go to the hassle of coding it by hand. Currently it's a Word document, and getting the PDF is really easy, I just print to Acrobat. Getting HTML appears to be a nightmare by comparison, at least if I use Word.

Is there an alternative that'll give me nice clean HTML without the huge amount of crud that Word puts in, e.g. micromanaging the position of every letter? But without mangling the page layout too badly?

Just tried Open Office - it is definitely NOT the answer to this one, layout was awful.

I have a very vague memory of a program called Stripper that did something like this, does anyone know if it's still around?
