Hi Folks

I want to write a script which will take a Word file and convert some of 
the most common character formatting in that file and replace it with 
latex commands. So, for example if a string of characters is italisized 
in word the script will replace it with that string surrounded by 
\textit{}. And so on for some other bits of formatting that will not 
convert with find/replace in Word.

Does anyone have any suggestions, for a scripting novice, of which 
scripting language would best accomplish this? Should I learn Perl, 
Applescript or what?

Thanks in advance
