Thanks, Ranier. I have just now tried this on a simple document (two equations, 
two sections, a footnote, a figure with caption, a greyed comment, and two 
cross references (to an equation and to a section).

As usual, the LyXHTML looks very good. But in the docx, the equations are not 
rendered and contain spurious text, the figure caption and figure name are 
separated from the figure and are shown as normal text, spurious text is 
inserted relating to the image, and all of the cross-references move the cursor 
to the title rather than to where it should move. The footnote is printed as 
ordinary text as is the greyed text also.

pandoc -o newfile.odt newfile1.xhtml

results in a similar result, but with completely nonfunctional cross references 
and no spurious text relating to the figure image.

I'm using OS X, LyX 2.0.5, Word 2011, LibreOffice, and pandoc
