This isn't strictly related to technical writing, but it involves some of the same tools, so I hope people here can help me.

How hard is it to convert from Quark to Word? The person I'm working for just finished a book which is being laid out in Quark by the publisher. He submitted a Word document, and works exclusively in Word.

He wants an editable version of the final manuscript, so the options are either to take a copy of the Quark file and convert it to Word, or to take the submitted Word document and type in every single change that the copyeditor, proofreader, or editor introduced -- if it's even possible to get those.

Any advice is appreciated.
