Converting Windows wmf-files to ps/eps
Print to PS/EPS printer in the windows application and then perhaps use ps2eps
wmf2eps (a Windows program)

There are some programs in the net for converting tex to html. For a comparison look at http://www.mayer.dial.pipex.com/samples/comparisons.htm latex2html, For Tips look here
tth and hevea are three of them and should be part of your Linux-Installation and therefore you have nothing to do.

output from tth will be in a single file named the same as your tex file, but with .html at the end.
output from latex2html will be in a subdirectory it creates with the name of your file. There will be a lot of files and with index.html you can start.

Word2TeX 32-bit 1.0 Intelligent 32-bit External converter for Microsoft Word 7.0 (or later) to TeX ... :-))

If you use OpenOffice under Linux then import the Word doc and export it to the OpenOffice format. With the Writer2LaTeX tool you can convert it into LaTeX. The mathematical stuff is converted, too!

Importing an ASCII-file as paragraphs is sometimes not possible. Importing as lines is cruel, because all the linebreaks in a paragraphs have to be deleted by hand ...
you can run perl from the commandline (posted by Kayvan):
perl -n -e 'chomp; if ($_ ne "") { print $_, " "; next; }; print "\n"; ' file
or compile the following short C++ program and run it with your ASCII-file before importing it.
#include <string>
#include <fstream>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
        string line;
        ifstream ifs("tmp.txt");
        do {
                int c = ifs.peek();
                if (c == '\n') cout << '\n';
                getline(ifs, line);
                cout << line;
        } while(ifs);
another one from Dave Chapeskie
#include <stdio.h>
main (void)
        char *cp;
        size_t len;

        while ((cp = fgetln (stdin, &len)) != NULL) {
                if (len > 1 && cp[len-1] == '\n')
                        cp[len-1] = ' ';
                printf ("%.*s", (int)len, cp);
        printf ("\n");
        return 0;
