[OS X TeX] LaTeX -> Word?

I've tried latex2rtf on your file (replacing the figure by one of mine):

> ------------
> \documentclass[11pt]{article}
> \usepackage[applemac]{inputenc}
> \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
> \usepackage{graphicx,german}
> \begin{document}
> Das ist ein Test. ä ö ü ß
> $\alpha ~ \beta ~\gamma$
> \begin{figure}[h]
> \centering
> \fbox{\includegraphics{Benzol}}
> \caption{Eine kleine Abbildung}
> \end{figure}
> \begin{equation}
> E = m \cdot c^2
> \end{equation}
> \end{document}
>  ----------

The output isn't so bad: the Greek and German letters show up fine, and 
the equation too, in Word. Don't trust TextEdit for rendering RTF 
files, I've found its rendering quite bad, generally, as soon as you 
ask it more than bold and italic text, say.

Only messed up thing: the graphical file isn't included. It also seems 
that latex2rtf is stubbornly restrictive in its syntax: \centering 
produces a warning, but if you replace it by a \begin{center} 
\end{center} environment, the warning is suppressed.

In case you have problem with the german package, you may also try 
replacing it by the babel package with option german.
