Re:styles vs. the original WordPerfect's "blank sh

[laughing] Dead-on... As I read the article, I repeatedly had the thought, "But WordPerfect has all these features, generally better implemented, and most of 'em all the way back to v5.1 (released in 1989)!!" -- If you want a REAL comparison of Oo's capabilities, compare it to WordPerfect, not Word. Word is fine if all you ever do is memos and automated stuff, but horrible for complex documents. But even so, I agree -- last time I looked at Oo, it made M$Office look usable.<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:(

And one of my great fears is that the source code for WPDOS 5.1/6.1 will be lost... please, Corel, opensource it before it's too late!!
