Besides using Google Docs (its help), I was looking for some collaborative tools to make multiple people edit one document at the same time.

The limits of Google Docs are:

  1. Every one who work on the document needs to have a Google account.
  2. IE 7 may not support all features of Google Docs.
  3. If one person is viewing the document, the editing by another person in the same document becomes slow.
  4. Upload a word document and images in it disappeared.

Found some interesting tools:

ShowDocument is a tool of web meeting and document sharing.

Codoxware allows simultaneous editing from multiple users in the same document consistently and as they are being typed.

Acrobat.com is a product of online conferencing offered by Adobe.

In addition, a list of collaborative real-time eidtors is available on Wikipedia.
