         I don't know of software that does this well. I wrote a LaTeX to 
rtf translator that does everything I want it to do (footnotes, 
bibliography, some macro expansion,...) but doesn't do figures or complex 
math. I refuse to translate LaTeX math into rtf, because rtf just isn't as 
accomplished a math formatter as TeX. I've not seen a publisher unhappy 
with an rtf version of a paper that is okay with all the text, plus a pdf 
file for the figures and math.
