I've had some luck using something called la2mif, that converts TeX to Maker Interchange
Format that can be read into FrameMaker and saved to RTF. It did a surprisingly good job on
equations, though I'm not sure how much would be retained during the conversion to RTF. For
details, try http://www.mekon.co.uk.

With small documents (on one page), you can Select all --> copy PDF data from Acrobat and
paste it into FrameMaker. Again, it's a kludge and you may have problems with character sets,
but it will at least get the data into a textual format.

Please don't judge me based on these methods - I feel cheap and dirty as it is...
