Thanks to Adam, Bruno and Claus for the quick answer. I tried
latex2rtf on my document (article with bibliography, no equations
and no special fonts) and am surprised by the pretty nice outcome.
The only thing not entirely satisfaying is the bibliography - but
that seems to be comparably easy to correct (or I should venture
deeper into the latex2rtf documentation).
The OpenOffice-solution sounds interesting as well (esp. since I am
already using for quick papers). I guess the fact that I do not have
to deal with equations makes everything a lot easier.
Just out of curiosity: I saw the i-Package wvware MS Word Conversion.
Anybody got some experience with that? (even though that would do the
opposite operation I was trying to do)
Claus: I am afraid that won´t work... historians are quite
conservative (at least those I have to deal with). Just to explain
why I have pdf- and not doc-format (LaTex??? What the heck is that??)
Would be an interesting but probably hopeless project.
