You may even be able to do this without the editor knowing what
revision tracking is. 

(For example, a large number of school teachers work for us as
contract writers, and they typically have very good subject knowledge
but only beginner to intermediate word-processing skills; we have to
make word processing instructions suit the lowest common denominator.) 

When the edited file is returned, use Word's Compare Documents feature
to see what has changed since the Word file was supplied to the
editor. Then, as per Jeremy's suggestion, carefully edit the FM source
document based on the results of the doc compare.
