"Why would you not want to open a word processor to read a word document ?"

1) Because you have a website and you want to display the text of a Word document instead of making th user download it.

2) Because you want to search the text without the formatting.

3) Because you want to extract the text without formatting.

4) Because you want to put the content into another application.

5)...
