You don't want to use MS Word as your source file unless you're looking
for an advanced programming project, whether using DOC or RTF format.
Use a TXT file, if that's going to be your process.  You can use
anything to accomplish your task, really, but I would suggest Ant since
it can be scheduled and can perform string substitution and execute
external tasks such as a Forrest rebuild and an FTP if necessary. See
the Ant-Contrib project for useful Regex string substitution utilities
for Ant.
