Convert Word documents to MediaWiki markup

This little bit of wisdom may help me feed Word docs to my corporate Wiki.

Converting documents to mediawiki markup

Word Documents


Saving a relatively simple Word document (no images or tables) to html and then running that through the converter here produced good mediawiki formatting. A document including images, tables, and centered text did not work as well. The images would need to be added to OWW separately, the table also didn't come out quite right and centered text was no longer centered.

A direct converter can be found here.

A series of Word macros for doing simple conversions (including tables) is here; they seem to work reasonably well but aren't designed for sophisticated layouts.
