I once had access to a utility that allowed me to "see" a Word file in its
undraped form (woo woo! (pant) (pant)) I discovered at that time that once
a file is saved for the first time, Word handles each subsequent saved
change as a "delta" string appended in chronological order to the end of
the file (hence the recommendation to copy over all but the final paragraph

Any wonder why the file continues to grow?

For this reason, I also take every opportunity to discourage others
(particularly my employer) from surreptitiously sending Word .doc files to
their customers and clients. The item that they copied and changed could
contain sensitive information embedded in the file.
