Word actually has quite a good compare/merge tool built in, but to persuade it to open the files I normally end up changing their filenames by hand back to docx. Is it possible to have tortoise create files with the naming convention:

TortoiseSVN already does that, just right-click edit conflicts and it
will call the document merge view with the conflicted files for you.
Also see Tortoise SVN Settings / External Programs / Merge Tool /
Advanced. As for the file extensions, that's probably part of the svn
library, not TortoiseSVN.
Also consider lock communication on non-code files using svn:needs-lock
properties and separating the text processing part from the DTP part
when working on documents, e.g. LaTeX.

With kind regards,
