>>>>My point was that sending out a file in RTF (Hook was more correct) was a better choice because it is not dependent on platform or WP of choice.

Ford: I agree. I had forgotten about RTF in my original note. (I don't think I've had occasion to use RTF for anything in at least seven or eight years.)

>>>>As to which is better, I can't answer that. I've used Word, Word Perfect, Apple Works and Open Office.

Among "significant" WPs (i.e., full-function, not stripped down) I have used MS Word, Lotus WordPro, the late/great DeScribe (for OS/2, primarily), and all did the job. Each had/has its strengths and weaknesses. I use both Word and WordPro on a daily basis at work and they both drive me crazy at times (quirks in how they do things, apparent bugs, etc.), but they both get the job done.
