I believe the only truly reliable way to remove "hidden
data" from a Word file (doc or template) is to set your Word
defaults to what you want the metadata to say, open a new
document, copy the content from your working document, paste
it into the new document and then save with no further
edits. All of the different tools and techniques I have
seen to "clean" an existing file leave some bit or another
of information buried somewhere in the binary hash.
