htlatex filename "html,4,1"
this should create a single filename.html document, plus another doc with the footnotes.
it converts images and equations (but i don't do math, so have not first-hand experience)
open filename.html in Word.
If you have open office, try TeX4ht's:
converts to oo's xml format.
open in oo and save as word.
