Is there a reason you can't use FrameMaker? Just create a conditional
text tag for reviews and put the document in an electronic location
your reviewers can access. You might ask them all to make sure they set
network file locking so only one reviewer can make changes at a time.
If you really want to go wild, you can set it up so each reviewer's
suggestions show up in a different color.
