I also sent the OpenDocument format that is used in OpenOffice.org (OO). 
OO have an excellent tools for recording changes. From the e-mail sent 
05:41 this morning:

Select the menus: 

  Edit -> Changes -> select both Record and Show

Using that the change the document when you are proofreading the text. 
The fixed words and sentences get underlined and changes colour. Then I 
can use the "Accept and Reject" tool to merge the changes! This reduces 
the time spent proofreading with at least 50%. 

It's really a good tool for proofreading. You should try it out at once. 
If you don't have OpenOffice.org 2.0, i can downgrade the document to 
the internal OpenOffice.org 1.0 format.
