I have used latex2rtf. I was pleasantly surprised by the compactness of
the RTF it produced (compared to what MS-Word produces!) and the rendering
seemed reasonably faithful, within the limitations of the wordprocessor.
I admit I haven't had to deal with much maths or with complex tabular
layouts, and I know latex2rtf is less than a full solution, even for
LaTeX, and does nothing for plain TeX, etc.
Apologies if I'm being ignorant but I guess converting TeX to RTF is a
better strategy than to attempt to directly create Word .doc files, which
are a bit of a black secret. Is there a dvi2rtf program or project ?
