Converting HTML to Word Format (doc, docx or rtf)

Hi Experts,

I am in need of a technique or component that will allow me to convert an HTML output to a format readable with Microsoft Word. Basically a user creates a CV and then has the choice of downloading it in either PDF or Word formats. I have done the PDF without a hitch with a scheduled convertor residing on the server. I was hoping for a similar technique with the Word files but have been unsuccessful in locating the software.

Any help would be appreciated

I have not tried this,
Look at this,

<html xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"

    Response.ContentType = "application/msword"



This just opened up in Internet Explorer. Looked great, but wasn't MS Word. How would I go about getting this into MS Word?

Ridiculous answers, all you are looking for is a straight forward converter, not having to write in code. I don't know why some on here even bother to answer with ridiculous comments.
