I suggest you put a couple of form tags round everything you want to input:

<form name="mainform" action="[location of a CGI script]" method="post">
[Content]
</form>

Then replace each of your &nbsp; by <textarea name="area1"></textarea>

Your CGI script should then be able to gather the information from the text areas and save the data off for you.  For example in a Perl CGI script, you might access the textarea above by something like:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use strict;
use CGI;

my $q = new CGI();
print $q->header();

my $input = $q->param('area1');

open FILE, "> filename";
print FILE $input;
close FILE;

print "Saved data";

It's a little bit tricky to do so.  The only way you could achieve that sort of effect is to set the textarea's style to "overflow: hidden", which hides the scroll bars, but also any content which overflows the box.  You could then write a bit of Javascript to monitor the input and change the overflow type when there's enough input to probably overflow the box.  But that's very tricky to know as characters can be different sizes etc.

Outputting .doc files with Perl is quite hard work.  Best I can do is point you in the direction of http://use.perl.org/article.pl?sid=01/03/07/030233

I'm afraid I've never done it myself.

Well, what you're asking for requires server-side scripting to save the data somewhere, which means you'll need to learn something about Perl or similar.
