I have just opened a 100 page MSWord file in Open Office and exported it as
HTML. It looks decent (no mso objects in the source), but you will still
need to cut off <head> manually and you are not guaranteed that thing will
look exactly the same as in the orignal. There also appear to be many
<table>s involved, which I guess is plausible.
I suggest that your friend installs the most recent beta of OpenOffice.org
(which approaches version 2) and uses it for conversion.
