Dhaval:

You might be better off posting this into the SharePoint Dev group, but here is my take...

You can do this via a few mechanisms, all of which solve part of the problem but introduce some others:

1. Information Rights Management - protect the Word file, limiting what people can do

2. Document Converters - use the MOSS functionality to convert the docs to HTML and just show the HTML

Dhaval:

OK, then you're only option is to use IRM. You can't stop the user from downloading the document, but you can prevent them from saving it, printing it, emailing it, etc. IRM does that, but there are some hoops to jump through.

Note that IRM is not foolproof (the simple fact that they can see the document on their screen means that they can take a copy of the info with them - even if it means just taking a picture of the screen)

I think it's important to note that the document converers are not limited to HTML. You can change a document into any other type of document. If you are trying to avoid an IRM deployment, doc converters are your best option.
