You can upload a word document just as any other file. If you upload it as a
'file' then I believe you are given the opportunity to set the mime-type. I
don't know what the correct one is, but browse IE and Netscape's list of
mime-types on a machine that has Word installed. It will probably be there. If
you set this, then a properly configured browser will respond to a click on the
item by pulling up word with the document.
