If the web server can access the doc tree, then Ht://Dig should be
fine with that, too. I'd rather check the version of the doc files.
Your external parser might barf on them (cause can either be docs
that have been stored with the quick-save option or the word version
number used to create the files not being supported by the external
parser used to munch the docs).
