Did you verify that it's not a browser cache issue?  (Try pressing the
<shift> key while hitting the browser reload button.)

FWIIW, storing docs in wikis isn't a good idea as you lose the ease of
reading and updating through the browser.  If you have Word documents
you want to migrate to wiki, there are  decent word to mediawiki
conversion tools around to help you.  We're using this one:

Kind regards,

Herta
