(gone through this many times.) Usually, I find the easiest thing to do is open in Open Office and export as XHTML. That way you get the structure you want and then whittle the rest of the junk away till you get it to conform to some schema, maybe splitting out content pieces based off of H1s (we sometimes get whole websites written in Word).
Another thing we do is just paste the Word content into our web based editor - Xopus - and it does the work to convert it to the current XML Schema. Does a really good job, but there is usually some clean up which is done by the author.
