Sounds like your going to reinvent Google Doc's and Office 365.

The easiest way would be to have a script that opened a word doc or what have you, and convert it to html, you'd use office or libreoffice to do that part, then import that file into a WYSIWYG editor like FCKEditor.
Or you can use Google-Doc's via it's API

Thanks Rich! This is a more than editor. Let me provide you more info. This tool needs to be accessed internally and there are around 20 thousand users who will access this tool everyday. This tool needs to manage versions ( like when a user1 opens new case (v1) and passes it to second user and if second user makes any changes  then it is V2 and in addition to that if second user has comments that needs to be captured in sort of chat box before it is passed to either user1 or user3. I know there wont be any COTS or freeware product that can meet all my requirements. What I am looking is to take any product that we can customize in order to meet our business needs.

Sounds like sharepoint is for you. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/ff956106.aspx

It's already enterprise level and well established. I know of nothing else that works like this with office documents outside of SVN/CVS/GIT and other revision control software.
I see Apple Software in your question tags, I'm not sure what support there is for Apple with sharepoint, but I do know you can WYISWYG with sharepoint and M$ office documents so I think even if there is no direct client for M$ office for Mac, you can do it over the web. Get a demo from M$ and you can see Sharepoint probably has most of what your looking for.

+1 for sharepoint for your needs and possibly with office365.  You can have multiple people edit the same document and watch the updates live.  It is best to work with the desktop ms word although if needed the cloud based ms word has the main features of the desktop version as well as the same look and feel.

System integration can be issue if I use Dot net products as other portion of  the system is purely built on Java.

I don't know what you mean, I don't know what Java has to do with editing office documents.
I don't know of a product that does what I think you want, that comes close to Sharepoint. I don't like M$, but that is the product that seems to fit your request. I looked for sharepoint alternatives
