cheap and mindless act.

The current spec source in in Word. It has several problems due to=20
limitations in Word for large documents. Longer term I would like to=20
move away from Word. I was thinking of Open Office which is the basis=20
for the Open Office Format TC:


Important criterea for choice of formats are:

-Open format (ideally XML)

-WYSIWYG Editors that are useable and reliable

-Ideally freely available software

Open Office meets each of the above requirements. Software is freely=20
available from:


Also since it can open Word formats migration from Word to Open Office=20
would be relatively painless.
