More and more people are looking at sharing or storing Word documents in the cloud, be it the Microsoft cloud or other vendors cloud, e.g. Google Documents. Of course it is important that an existing Word documents from a users desktop look identical when the user share it in the cloud.

To test this out we saved the same Word file on Office 365 SharePoint Online (Word Web App)  and Google Apps. You can check out the demo yourself. For your convenience we have circled and highlighted key file integrity differences when viewing the file through Word Web App and viewing it with Google Documents.

Mind you - the missing elements are gone forever when you reverse the action (if someone downloades the document to their desktop)
