Ah, well, I already tried that. (I said so, when I started this thread)

But not in great quality. I know that you can instruct tex4ht to
produce images in higher resolution, but then I get really big images
in Word which I'll have to reduce in size again. I actually even wrote
a macro to do this for me automatically, but because this is Word we're
talking about here it doesn't work all the time... :-(

Equations suck big time doing it like this. They get turned into images
which are not editable in Word, so it's kind of pointless.

I also tried this (which I also mentioned in my first post). The thing
is that OpenOffice completely messes up the equations and the images.
Equations become very small clickable boxes containing white space only
and images are simply left out. For pure text without images it works
rather nicely, but for that I wouldn't need to bother going through the
lengthier process using OpenOffice, I could directly import the simpler
html file into Word. I was curious wether this was a Mac problem
because I've been hearing so many good things about the OpenOffice
route, so I installed MikTeX, tex4ht and OpenOffice on Windows at work,
but I got the same results there.
