You need .doc specification to do it. The thing is that for word 97 (not sure) it can be found, but it was not released for later versions.

You will probably need PHP to call a program like antiword to convert doc to txt, then convert txt to html.

Convert DOC to PDF in PHP

A project called "phpLiveDocx" recently launched, which allows you to convert between DOC and PDF formats (in addition to a number of different file types).

Currently, HTML is not supported as an output format. However, it WILL be added very shortly.

Google 'Convert DOC to PDF in PHP' and you will see a blog post, which illustrates the conversion process.
