You can also convert with openoffice on the command line using macros and the -invisible option:

Check out http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2006/01/11/from-microsoft-to-openoffice.html -- you can convert to text if you use the Filtername "Text" ala:

<code> MakePropertyValue( "FilterName", "Text" )</code>
