Idiot. Password123! is the way to go. I thought everyone knew that.
microsoft: 2004 called and we want our IDE back.

Using a modern version of Word, output in WordML (xml format). Use a XSL stylesheet to convert the WordML to FO (formatting objects).
From there, do anything you want, like XHTML or PDF.
Or just go to XHTML from WordML with some stylesheet. XSL is teh cool!
