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

Yes, Bruce, that's exactly where I am<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... really NO large documents at all. The largest I've ever done (in WordPerfect some years ago) was about 25 pages and that was reformatting something I'd downloaded off a BBS (yes, _before_ the www).

It seems to me that learning styles is an effort all unto itself. Tho perhaps I've really never gotten past the typewriter paradigm!

O.K. so I'm an old "green screen" (and earlier) fogey. Still, I find OO clumsy looking and it's hard for me to get beyond that!

I'm quite sure I could work with it if I had to, and I certainly don't mean to fault your review. It is a good one and needed.

I must confess I was thinking exactly what another poster wrote re: comparison to WP, but I also know there's not much point!!!

The next time I inherit a few billion $$, I promise I'll buy Corel and open source WordPerfect<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... even to resurrecting 5.1 if, as another writer wondered, it still exists somewhere!<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:-D
