HTML Transit is an excellent conversion tool. You build a template that
specifies how much of the document's formatting you want to maintain;
you can specify whether to take formatting from the document, don't
specify that formatting element, or always use a specific HTML tag.
You can even specify to begin a new page and each occurance of a
specific heading level. Additionally, you can specify that Transit
build a TOC and index based on headings and embedded tags.
Once your template is set up, conversion takes almost no time at all
and the HTML code is really clean.
