Hi, Ben --

Good to see you surface, MR2 list or not.

I should be pleased with this group's defense of M$ Word documents, as I
still remember one time when I attached a poster in Word format to an
announcement for a GSLUG meeting and sent it to various lists -- mostly
Linux-centric.  The incoming was positively nuclear.

What concerns me here is that Mohsen's original message included some
allegations of serious problems that could accompany a Word document.  No
one has addressed the validity of these claims, or means to circumvent them.
All have chosen to interpret Mohsen's input as born of pure prejudice, which
it seems to me, is the easy way out.

I see that not everyone gets past their "immature anti-Microsoft zealot"
