You don't mention what program you're using to convert the Word
documents, so I'll assume catdoc. I would use this program to convert
one of your documents and take a look to see if there's an easy way
to separate the TOC section from the rest of the document. Then you'd
want to hack the Perl script (I'm guessing from your comments that
you're using -- or the new doc2html scripts
should work as well) to ignore everything but this.
