Form based Word document

Problem description: A set of forms downloaded from http://www.prominadoresdesuenos.org do not import correctly.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download and open http://www.prominadoresdesuenos.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/application-form.doc in LibreOffice.
2. If the same file is opened in Google Docs Viewer, the page formating is much cleaner.

Current behavior: Tables and form fields are shifted on the page. Filling in the form fields is difficult.

Expected behavior: Simple and easy to fill out form in the document.

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release
