No idea, except why would file size be an issue in Word? Disk space is
cheap. Networks are fast. Any resulting publication based on these files
(PDF, for example) will likely lose the "extra" baggage, and be
reasonable sizes... what's the issue? Weigh the convenience of Word's
cross-references against the low cost of storage, and decide...

That said, Word tends to increase the sizes of files over time, saving
the editing information and versions as you go. Saving the file under a
new name (Save As) will usually result in a smaller file.

Hope this helps, but if it doesn't, I've seen a 30BG IDE hard drive for
about $150. Look around for deals...
