[OS X TeX] Word to Latex and Back again

This comes up from time to time.

There are a pair of shareware programs that seem to work pretty well,  
but I've only tried them in evaluation mode.


The programs are called "Word2TeX" and "TeX2Word". The latter requires  
also MathType, I believe.

There is a review at http://www.mth.uea.ac.uk/~h720/publications/.  
You'll need to scroll down to get the pdf of the review.

Good luck,
