For PDF , there is in-built support for PDF files, for MS-Word, I thinking of using WordML. Lets see if anyone other has some solution for it.

For PDF, try FPDF libray and for word, I am still looking for some thing which can read MS-Word document. I am successful in reading Open Office documents till now
