I answered my own question. After much diligent searching through
Microsoft's support site, I found that the formatting for Word97/98 is
different from previous versions (no explanation offered as to why). There
is an update patch available from Microsoft called WRD97CNV.EXE, which will
detect a Word97 file and convert it so that it can be read by Version 6.x
or 7.x. Since Word97/98 will read the older files, might I suggest that the
DOC files on the Web site be converted so that everyone can read them.

MS Word is not considered a critical application at our site, such that we
would always have the latest version.
