"Looking for the best format-retaining process for publishing manuals written in Word online."

If you want to make sure the format looks exactly the same, make PDFs of your documents and post those to the web.

If you want your document to be in HTML, Word 2000 and up do a good job with "Save as HTML" (might be called "Save as Web Page"). Both the HTML file and the CSS stylesheet need to be posted to the web... and if you have any graphics, those will have to be included. In general, this process creates a single file in the directory you specify and a new directory called filename-FILES ... you need to put both the single file and the directory on the website.
