Unfortunately mon Captain Flamebaiter, there are a number of us who disagree
completely. I have an extensive dissertation on a stable methodology that I
am eagerly awaiting publishing shortly. I cannot count the number of people
who have a copy on their desks and have forgotten all about any sort of
"WARNING, WARNING, Danger Will Robinson, Danger, Danger" antics from someone
who has no idea other than a single URL reference.
So you better rethink your 'spurious claims' line there, you have been
proven wrong by thousands of satisfied users. My last problem with Master
Documents was in 1996, with Word 97, at the latest. Now entering my sixth
year in a row of trouble-free document collections.
Surely there are more polite ways of passing your information on, Reverend

Works very well?!?!? At corrupting your document, yes. For its

done it for you yet, you've been very lucky.
DO NOT USE WORD MASTER DOCUMENTS!
