This is true, except later versions of diff-doc.js and diff-docx.js will
attempt to use OpenOffice.org if Microsoft Word cannot be found.
merge-doc.js and merge-docx.js do not, although they should (see a
previous email of mine:
http://svn.haxx.se/tsvnusers/archive-2008-07/0632.shtml), since the
files should be the same.

In reference to my above statement, you should not have to do this for
diffs of *.doc if you have the latest diff-scripts.
