The short answer is "it depends".  To make such files generally available 
you have to convert them to HTML so arbirary browsers can access them.  
You can use MS Word to do the conversion.  If your Zope is running on a 
Windows machine that also has Word, you can manage the conversion 
dynamically using an External Method or a Product (which you'd have to 
write).  Alternatively, you could store the MS Word document in it's XML
form and use that to drive the rendering.   If you are not interested in 
general availability and you users are all running Windows with Word 
installed, you can configure IE, I believe, to render Word documents
