You upload the Word file (.doc) separately into your
webspace, either in the same directory as your HTML, or you
may want to create a directory for uploaded files.
You may have to upload using an FTP program or an online
upload utility provided by your webhost.
Then, you make a link on your web page to the file ...
<.a href="userlist.doc">userlist.doc (34K)<./a>
or ... if you made a separate directory:
<.a href="/uploads/userlist.doc">userlist.doc (34K)<./a>

It's always nice to let the user know how big the file is
before they download it. They can either open it in Word,
or download onto their hard-drive. If they don't have
Microsoft Word, they can't view it either way. That's why
many people convert to .pdf files (cross platform, PC/MAC).
