The only other document conversion tool that I know of is AdLib
Sentinel from AdLib Systems (http://www.adlibsys.com). I would expect
that it would require the fonts to be installed on the system as well, or
at least embedded in the Word file.
NOTE: uploading of fonts can raise legal/licensing issues - and
you should avoid it like the plague!
