Word documents? Yes, if you mean the WordML-format, but then you have

Same for HTML. If it is XHTML, then it can be transformed to FO using  
XSLT. You could also achieve a similar transformation via Java code,  
with CSS2XSLFO (http://www.re.be/css2xslfo/)

Note that with 0.95, it will also be possible to insert entire PDFs
