Pardon me if this is an inane question. Recently, a client told us
that a Word (2000) template we had created from them passed their
testing ("we tried to break it and couldn't - it's good").

Testing software is something I understand. Testing a template - I'm
totally in the dark about that! Nor did Google, the TECHWR-L archives,
or searches provide anything helpful. Probably I'm using
the wrong search terms.

Could someone here please throw some light on this "template testing"
and how one goes about doing it? It would be nice if we could have a
set of tests to apply to the templates we create...

Thanks in advance,
