I tried to follow the links to the mswordview, but I did not find anything, but
a complete word processor.  I can save it in txt format at work, but when I
take it back to word format after I had it home, it has to have every single
edit mark put back in.  These are technical documents.  I do not have the 
patience to re-edit the entire file!  :-)  Beside my spelling is
aaaatroocouuus!  I rely heavy on the spell checkers.

A positive attitude may not solve all of your problems, but it will annoy
enough people to make it worth the effort
