HyperText

So, my friend has this manuscript that he wants to convert from Word to a website with hypertext...
What's the most efficient way to do the conversion?

From what I can see him doing in Word, it's going to take him 3 years to complete even if he works 8 hours/day --
We're talking approximately 1,000 pages with multiple words per page that need to be hypertexted.

+ He wants to hypertext every character's name each time it shows up.
For example --

The way he has it set up now, let's say Ben's name is hypertexted on page 72 -- Click on "Ben" to see his description -- Click on "Back" to go back to where you left off reading on page 72.

Repeat process for 10,000 references to "Ben" EXCEPT, each reference gets "Back"ed to where the person left off reading (Different page each time) --> There's the rub!?

Ben's name is hypertexted on page 72 -- Click on "Ben" to see his description -- Click on "Back" to go back to where you left off reading on page 72.
Ben's name is hypertexted on page 81 -- Click on "Ben" to see his description -- Click on "Back" to go back to where you left off reading on page 81.
Ben's name is hypertexted on page 94 -- Click on "Ben" to see his description -- Click on "Back" to go back to where you left off reading on page 94.
