Hi Jonathan, Dan,

I am interested in what you have to say about being able to work with longer documents in Word, if care has been taken to set Word and the template up appropriately. Another aspect I have found myself concerned about when working with Word, however, is the vulnerability of the document or template to accidental corruption (via, say, copying in text in from another Office document in certain circumstances) that could happen as a result of a moment of inattention, or by an unfamiliar author. Frame is pretty resistant in this regard. Would you say that a Word document, properly set up as was mentioned in some of the articles I just read in the links provided, is also pretty safe from accidental corruption? (by corruption I mean such things as accidental introduction of new styles, bugs introduced into numbering, etc.)
