I use Papyrus! Inexpensive, reliable, and flexible.. if not the slickest
interface in the world.  The program runs in Dos, but seamlessly interfaces
with windows through the clipboard.  It is the most stable program I have
ever run in a Dos window-others software companies should take note.  The
links to wordperfect (my preference are very good) as are the
importfunctions from paperchase (Medline).  Has filters for all of the
common imports, e.g. Silver platter, current contents etc. and most major
word processors.  Very satisfied customer every time I write! No afiliation
