I've been lurking on this thread...Such a script would be extremely handy,
if you were willing to share!
Most journals in my field don't know TeX exists, and the path to
enlightenment is slow...I'm dealing with musical examples rather than
formulae, which work beautifully either directly in TeX or with Lilypond. To
my knowledge, MS Word has no way of dealing with them beyond importing
graphics. Is there a polite way to tell editors that they are making their
OWN lives more difficult, let alone those of contributors?
