Hi Mark,

Yes.  Publisher's do that all the time.  Apparently MSWord is a standard of
some sort -- my field (Geophysics) often requires manuscripts in this
format.

Makes for great fun all round since the paper never quite formats the same
on their machine as it did on yours.  Sometimes, it never quite formats the
same between saves on your own machine.

As for concrete advice, you might try cutting & pasting text between the two
programs.  You'll probably have to do any equations again in Word's equation
editor.  You might also try Mathematica -> TeX -> MSWord, as I recall something
about a TeX to MSWord converter.  

If it were me, I'd bite the bullet & write the paper in MSWord.  In my
experience, it is simpler this way.

Regards,

Dave.
