comment What is a good toy example to teach version control?
+1. If you are teaching source control, don't confuse things by throwing a technology into the mix that some people in the audience won't be familiar with.

comment Are there tools that do automated validation of database standards?
@ElYusubov no I didn't look at that. If there are unit testing tools aimed at databases I suppose that might work, although it would probably be a bit more cumbersome than a tool that was specifically designed to be a validation rules engine.

comment Open .doc file from my website in browser
Oh. I see. Well then I guess I'm confused as why the requirement for *.doc. It seems like a lot of work to translate it back and forth.

BTW, while all of my options do require installing / running something on the user machine, they could all be orchestrated via a web application. I don't think you'll be able to get away from some level of code running on user machine if you want to use Word specifically.

If you are looking for something that can be used in every computer with access to a browser, then you should not be looking at Word at all. Just keep the document in Markdown or something which gives the user some limited formatting, such as what Stack Exchange does.

Ah. I do see it now in the top-voted answer, with no details around it. If you consider that adequate feel free to delete this.

Okay. I search for the term Time Boxing on this page and only find it in my answer. But if you feel other questions address the same concept with different terminology than that is fine. I would suggest editing those answers to include the term though, since that is a common term for the concept.

So it looks like my answer is fairly well aligned to your stack. Yes, you might need to upgrade to .NET 4 for some of these options, but that is a simple move from .NET 2 so it shouldn't be a big deal.
