/* Class to convert any document, that can be read by MS Word, to another format supported by Word.
	 * © Alain M. Samoun 10/2001.
	* Gnu GPL code (see for more information).
	* Tested on win98 + Apache1.3  PHP 4.8 dev as CGI  - Word 2000
	* This file should be saved in the PHP's include directory.
	*If you try to use COM in XP/win2k or NT, you need to 
         set-up permissions to the application
 	with the program DCOMCNFG.EXE : 
	Run DCOMCNFG.exe, select the application and add permissions
        in Security:
	- Custom Access Permissions: “Allow” 
	Then Edit / Add
	- the “IUSR_<servername>” user access to the object.- The user
          account to run the application: “The interactive user” 
	And close.
	* Usage:
		require ("wordconvert.php");
		new wordconvert($filename,$convert_to,$visible);
	* Conversion time example: Convert a 33 pages rtf document (133KB)
          to an htm file (268KB)in 6 sec. (300MHz processor). Not a speed 
          daemon, but will work for small files on servers
	  with low hits number (Intranet...).
