My experience with Word files and Word users is, that they never ever  
use a really _logically_ markup. The documents are overfull by double  
linebreaks instead of paragraph breaks, tabs instead of indents, bold  
and underlined characters instead of real headers.

How should LaTeX recognize a logical structure in such documents to  
convert them right?

I think, the problem is _not_ Word. The problem are the Word _users_.

Kind regards. Friedrich
