Need code to convert word doc to html

I need a php code which can take a word doc and convert it in html on the fly.

I searched Google a lot found several scripts which convert word doc to html easily but do not retain the word formatting in html. so I need something which can take the formatting also.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

no clue, you'd have to keep looking

phpclasses or hotscripts might have one

well, finally I got a class from the above site, and it worked fine on my windows OS which has MS word installed. But it doesn't work with Linux server.

Thanks, I will be looking.

abiword can convert MS Word files to html on the command line. The syntax is
abiword your_word_file.doc -to=newfile.html

if you have abiword on your linux system and you have write permission for the output directory, you should be able to wrap the abiword command in either the exec() or system() function.
