Hello Libby:

I use two different types of converters.  

1. rtf to html - Mac
This converter starts with a word document saved as rich text format
than converts that to html.  So there are several steps to this.  The
size of the document affects the amount of saving and than converting

2. Internet Assistant
This converter attaches itself to Microsoft Word.  It will give you an
option to save a word document straight into html and does the
conversion itself.  This is faster and less steps than the first
converter.  This converter I use more often.

Both of these converters were downloaded from the web.  

I hope this helps.
