Word document are full of formatting and control codes.  Even documents saved as HTML are junk from a web standpoint.

I am not aware of anything that will dynamically present word docs as anything resembling valid or robust HTML which is what you need for the web. Even if you wrote a couple of hundred lines of code to remove all the illegal character from a document, you would be left with a naked text file, and there would be no styling or formatting.

You could required the CVs to be submitted as a doc saved as HTML, but you would be dealing with HTML generated by Word which is the worst example of HTML you will ever find and it will have issues on many browsers.

You might be best to have the CVs done as PDF.  That gives an acceptable presentation, or make the CVs available for download, with no online display option.
