MS-Word I understand to be a word processor. Recall
that many members of Statalist do not use and certainly
are not expert in Windows or Microsoft products generally. 

In Vim, the way that seems to be most natural 
is a Unix way. You can have two files open in two 
windows and set it so that differences are highlighted. 
So, one could be a previous version and the other a working 
version. 

I gather that Word behaves differently. 

In general, good text editors will have something loosely
similar. None that I know of regards it as a virtue to 
emulate Word.
