I have had experience with conference proceedings editors who, being  
under-staffed as conference proceedings editors generally are, had  
produced Word templates for the abstracts and communications but were  
reluctant or unable to find the resources for producing TeX versions  
of these templates. Of course, there is always the occasional lucky  
conference proceedings editor who manages to recruit a slave (read  
Master or Doctorate student) to perform the conversion ;-)

That's getting OT again, but just in case: I don't know what your  
history studies are exactly (neither would I be likely to understand  
-- I'm part physicist, part mathematician). If you're a medievalist,  
a few free font sites have recently been evoked on the XeTeX list.  
These fonts may be used either with XeTeX or Word. Specifically, the  
fonts are:

> Cardo
> <http://www.mufi.info/fonts/#Cardo>
> <http://scholarsfonts.net/cardofnt.html>
> Andron Scriptor
> <http://www.mufi.info/fonts/#Andron>
> <http://www.mufi.info/fonts/Andron/Andron%20Scriptor%20W1.ttf>

More generally, two sites dedicated to fonts for scholars are <http:// 
www.mufi.info/> and <http://scholarsfonts.net/>.

Again, I'm not sure at all this info may be relevant in your case.  
Sorry if it's not.
