We're in the process of putting Word docs on our intranet with HTML Transit to convert Word docs. It creates HTML docs from Word quickly, it keeps the original formatting, and you can edit the HTML as needed.

We've used it for about 4 months, and the only problem I've seen is that if you've got documents that use form fields that use the pull-down option (users must choose from a list of info rather than input it themselves) the form fields don't translate; HTML Transit leaves those fields blank. There may be a way to remedy this, but so far we've just deleted the form fields and retyped the chosen info for those docs that go on the Web. If anyone else uses HTML Transit and has encountered this problem, I'd be glad to hear what you did to fix it.

You can download a trial copy of Transit at

I should add that, as Sean Brierley mentioned, this works for us because the information goes on our intranet, so only our employees see it. We've also standardized on our browser, so we only have to worry about people changing their viewing options, not what browsers they you. You also will need to consider the formatting of you current documentation. Will it work online? Ours doesn't really, but right now our focus (per management) is to get the documentation out there, then worry about how it looks later.
