I've been using HTML Transit from InfoAccess with very good results. You
set
up a template that maps Word paragraph styles to "translator elements"
that
have particular HTML attributes. It can automatically split large docs
into
multiple HTML pages, and generate hyperlinks among them using Word's
bookmark
field codes. It can also generate hyperlinked global and/or local tables
of contents and an index. Information and a full-function demo version
are
available at:
http://www.infoaccess.com/

There are a few quirks and shortcomings of the HTML code generated by
HTML Transit, but most of these can be easily dealt with using a good
HTML editor like HomeSite, which is a nifty shareware application
