Check out Majix:

Majix will convert a Word document (rtf) to DocBook XML, which you can
output to a number of formats including HTML. I haven't used this on a
large scale, but I evaluated this by setting up a bare-bones system,
and it does work.

Theoretically you can set up your environment so all your users have to
do is drop a Word document into a directory, and Majix will convert it
to XML. You'll need to script the rest of the process (which is where
you can insert your custom .css), but it all seems doable.

Of course, like any Word-to *ml conversion, it will choke on certain
complex Word formats, so you'll have to use a restricted template.

I have noticed a bunch of new commercial Word-to-HTML solutions lately,
but I haven't tried any of them, and Majix-plus-DocBook is open source,
so it will cost you nothing but your time and brainpower.
