You should be able to change the association of .DOC from WORD to your
favorite text editor. I use Netscape 4.05 and the relevent section is
Edit-Preferences-Navigator-Applications. Find the MSWORD application,
press edit and change the mime type and the program to launch. You can
also tell Navigator to ask you before downloading/opening the document.
