You report still having problems converting LaTex to html (on your 
way to Word :(

If I understand correctly you are following Bob's suggestion to do this:

1- htlatex filename

2- Open in Word or TextEdit or Pages.

But it somehow this isn't working for you . . .

If that's correct, and your problem is finding the directory and 
files for the conversion, perhaps you can try this:

1) Open up a Terminal window

2) For maximum ease, make a copy of the directory with your tex file 
in it to the desktop.

3) in Termial type 'cd' then drag your folder with your tex document 
to the Termial window
(you are now in that directory!

As Bob  says, type "htlatex filename.tex" and just sit back and wait. 
You should see a bunch of stuff scroll by in the Terminal window, 
then your html version of the document will pop open in your default 

I hope I am undserstanding your problem well enough to not be 
insulting you because you already know all this ;-)
