Help me recover a seemingly corrupted Microsoft Word 6.0 file.

The file is a 200+ page manuscript. When I load it into MS Word 2004/WordPad/AbiWord/Open Office it comes up as a blank document (no error message, just blank. "Properties" claims 0 characters, 0 words, 1 page) If I load it into a plaintext editor, I can see the manuscript, but in the slightly mangled way in which all Word docs look in plaintext editors (i.e. no formatting, non-alphanumeric characters are wrong, etc.) I've also tried running it through some shareware apps that supposedly repair corrupted docs with no luck.
