I've been playing around with Pandoc, and I've found that its ability to
convert LaTeX to docx is rather limited. While it will convert equations
and mathematical expressions reasonably well, it is not able to convert
arrays that use things such as \hline or other formatting commands. This
isn't surprising to me, but it means that arrays with special formatting
need to be altered before using Pandoc.
