Like a bad penny, this thread keeps coming back.

Ye olde Ventura docs are text files in markup language, like HTML. You can
convert them with a simple Word macro. E.g., the code to convert paras in the
Ventura style "Heading C" to Word style "Heading 3", is something like:

EditFind .Find = "@chead = " ' find heading c tags
While EditFindFound()
EditClear ' delete tag
EndOfLine 1
Style "Heading 3" ' apply word style heading 3
EditFind .Find = "@chead = " ' find next

You identify the styles used in the doc, assign corresponding Word styles, and
Bob's your uncle.

Write me for more info, if you like.
