We have done similar things, but there are no ready-to-use blueprints
for reading a static tree of documents yet. A plone.transformations
blueprint is in the planning stages, so soon you'll be able to
transmogrify word documents into HTML. For now, experienced coders
should be able to hack together a one-off blueprint to do either task.
