Or, since is giving you the results you like, rather
than switching rendering, you could do the following:

1. Make sure that the PyUNO bits for are installed.  On
Fedora 10, this is the "" package (go figure).

2. Download this helpful script, which I found by googling:

3. Do a batch conversion:

   for F in *.doc ; do
       H="$(basename "$F" .doc).html"
       python "$F" "$H"

Note my little batch command is very similar to the one above; I just
happen to be using the "basename" command, which I think most distros
