If you are only looking to do a basic conversion of Word documents
to HTML, AnchorPage may be overkill. AnchorPage was created to
automatically hyperlink AND index HTML documents. AnchorPage will,
however, create a TOC based on headings and hyperlink those to
headings in the document(s).

We do have a product called RTFact that converts RTF documents to
HTML. It will convert tables to your choice of either HTML tables
or bullet lists. RTFact converts RTF according to styles, e.g., RTF
'heading 1' to HTML '<H1>...</H1>', but the RTF style names to
convert can be adjusted.
