According to Laura Lemay, author of a 7-day HTML learning book,
Wordperfect macros are available to automatically convert your document
to HTML. WPTOHTML is listed as being available from
URL: <gopher://black.ox.ac.uk/h0/ousu_dir/.html-stuff/wptohtml.html>.

Also recommended is saving your document in Rich Text Format (RTF),
and converting that to HTML. You didn't say you had DOS or Windows,
but the RTFTOHTM filter is listed as being available from
