MS Word documents are either binary or some kind of practically unmergeable
XML. You should start with simple text files, and by reading the cvs and
cvsnt manuals about merging. (Even though cvsnt has a few extra features,
the basic idea is still the same as in standard cvs, and many of the
introductory texts still apply to some degree.)
