Have you ever wanted to convert Microsoft Word files to LaTeX files? I have been always looking for an easy way to do so but never seriously went after it. Today, I came across this FREE program called: Word-to-LaTex (Word-to-XML) converter which can do a pretty decent conversion job. It can even convert the equations (provided that you have proprietary program MathType). The images, tables and pretty much every thing else can be converted as well. I installed it and gave it a test run. The result was very promising but obviously not perfect. However, I assume it is good enough for most jobs.
