[TSVN] VBScript for comparing two MS Word documents

I have attached a VBScript for comparing two MS Word Documents.

In TortoiseSVN, you can configure this to be the diff viewer for .doc file
types. Just specify a command like this:

wscript.exe "C:\Path to script\compare.vbs" %base %mine

I offer this to the TortoiseSVN project. Feel free to improve it. I
think it would be cool if TortoiseSVN included the script and
pre-configured the association in the registry as part of the installer.

AFAICT, Word does not offer a 3-way merge capability, although it does
have a 2-way merge. You could possibly write a merge script that merges
the base with theirs, and then takes the result and merges in yours. I am
not sure what kind of results that would yield. If TSVN would like to
include this script, I could look into a merge script too.

Thanks

Mark
