Just had this question from a coworker:
They need to render a word 2000 document on the server with no client side intervention. I have done this in the past using XSL:FO, but I'm sure that there is a better way. I have also found using a COM object, but no reference to using a specific version of word.
Your timing is impeccable as we have JUST fixed this problem….
Then to view it on the client they would need one of the following
Write their own XML style sheet (similiar to what they are doing)
Adhere to just the XPS Word Subset and use IE 7.0 (my recommendation)
