I have to deal with Ads set in word on a regular basis.  What I tend to do is 
"print" the page to a postscript file, and then run it through Ghostscript to 
turn it into a graphic.

At work we now refuse to send any MS Publisher files away for imagesetting 
after the film for one seemingly perfectly valid set of files came back with 
all the lower case "e"s missing :^O

It's hard to detect good luck, it looks so much like something you've earned.
