[cvsnt] cvsnt for word doc version control

There is a plug-in for WinMerge to allow it to diff the text from a Word
I'm not sure whether this is available as part of the normal WinMerge or
whether it's part of the paid-for version of CVSNT.

There are some (mostly commercial) diff applications that can do diffs
Word and Excel files; just google around a bit, I don't have any
recommendations, but I know I saw a few over the years.

Word itself has a diff and merge feature built in. I use that sometimes:
export or checkout the copy I want to diff or merge under a different
or into a different directory, then go into Word and use its own

There seems also to be the cvsnt server diff plugin API, but I haven't
heard of anyone publishing a Word diff plugin.
