There is no friggin need to convert the documents!! If the guy/lady has
gotten on some big MS word Kick, then fine get the app.. I use it, infact I
switched from WP to Word a few years ago. But any WP files, stayed that
way. Word has WP style and keystroke comparisons too. You can set word up
to accept your wp keystrokes. But the docs can stay in wp format, and you
then call them into word through the wp import filter. resave them as wp or
word (or both) documents. Don't wate tmie and money going in and doing
en-masse conversions. NOT NEEDED, and less frustrating.. :)

>>1. What are we facing?

>Hell. :-)
Hehehehehe.. that'd be a bit of an understatement.. :)

>>4. Would WIN95 Word 7.0 help? Beta copies are available now, but would Word
>> 6.0c use its files?

>Knowing Microsoft, not likely.
Ya, as much as I like some of MS's software, their BETA release history is
the shits. Stay away until release 1.0A or so has come out. (The A is the
newest witht the initial bug fixes in place)

Yes these are my own thoughts and/or opinions.. Why the hell do I need to have
this disclaimer anyways?!?!?!?! It's my opinion and everyone's entitled to it.
If you don't like it, then don't read it! My employer backs me up on this as
I am one and the same person.
