As have I. When I run into a challenge with Word 2000, it's nice to
be able to pull Camarda's book off the shelf.
While I think he spends a bit too much time emphasizing Word's ability
to create web pages, he goes into a lot of detail on other, IMO more
useful, stuff. (Yes, if I'm going to create a web page, I'd sooner
use a tool that's designed for that purpose--like Dreamweaver.)
So, if you are looking for a good reference for Word 2000, I don't
think you'd go wrong investing in "Special Edition Using Word 2000."
