You could try this:

nb = NotebookOpen["/path/to/your/file/file.nb"]

Export["test.rtf", nb, "RTF"]

I tried is on a small example and while the full subscripting/
superscripting didn't seem to work, none of the box structure stuff
that you have mentioned in your post was transferred and the
formatting problems looked like something you could manually touch up
in your final document.

I viewed the output in TextEdit. I don't have MS Word so don't know
what it would look like in that. In OpenOffice the (equation) output
looked screwy. I'm not sure that RTF is a uniform format so that could
be an issue.
