Do any of those utilities, or any others, have a mechanism to preserve the font when converting from .doc to tex? I'm dealing with a document in which source code is indicated by Courier font, and all of the approaches I've attempted (e.g., textutils -> html -> pandoc) preserve some of the formatting but ignore the font. I've found no clear way to pull out source code by other means (e.g., regexp).
Not sure how it will work, as a large majority of the fonts in Word will not be available in LaTeX. I would probably try to export the Word document, if per chance it was correctly formatted, to XML. Converting the XML to any other markup format should be a much easier task.
luatexas the engines, any system font should be available to you for the converted project. I've only done .doc to .tex conversions once or twice (many years ago), but I found then that post-processing was sorely needed! Won't this be the case for your documents as well? In that case, I'd add 'setting the font' to the list of things that will need some extra attention.
