No, this ain't easy. Just ask the abiword,staroffice etc. guys.
But take a look at 


which uses wvware (www.wvware.com)
to convert msword documents into html.
But its easy to get all the various formats
(html, ps, pdf, ascii, wml) which wvware can export.

Just one question, on what basis do you want to hide the objects (i.e.
based on what permission).
We have documents people should be able to view in order to see effects of 
changes they made on other elements, but not able to change the document
itself. If these documents weren't visible in the management screen 
people would get confused, I fear.
Perhaps using semi-transparent icons could be used to give users 
some idea that the regarding file is restricted in some sense, but 
I'm sceptical.
