Hello:

I would like to design a fill-in form using Microsoft Word and publish it
for downloading on the
internal web site.  People would download the form and have it saved on the
local machines.  Are there any known issues related to viruses when such a
form is downloaded from the Web server and save it from the server location.

Is there any more risk with Word form then PDF forms?  (as far as I know you
cannot save PDF forms with Acrobat Reader).  I would like to use Word form
but I am concerned with the virus risks?

Can you advise
