I'm not saying I've ever done this , and I'm not saying it would
even be worth it given the overall situation, but just for the sake of
the idea...

A single upload of a word document would be possible if you could
manipulate it once you got it to the server. If it were a Windows
server, you'd be able to programmatically perform the save-as-html
operation by driving Word via vbscript. I'm not sure where the images folder would go. On
Linux, meanwhile, maybe you could script OpenOffice to achieve the same
result. Or possibly some other utility.

It's possible, theoretically, but also a lot of work.
