Do you want to display those files or edit them?

Displaying them is just a question of writing a view which uses a clever
html converter for Openoffice-, Word-, ...-files . For word, you can use 'wv'
which contains a program called wvhtml. I don't know a converter for openoffice
but it's file's XML structure Should make it easy to write one.

If you want to edit files server based, you'll have to write some kind of
AJAX-application, which I consider *very* complicated.
