The flaw in that theory is that I'm the only techwriter at this office,
but I'm definitely not the only person here who swears at Word.
Engineers trying to update documents.
Project managers trying to fix documents that other people have
modified.
Agency coordinator dealing with docs from in-house and docs from
external sources.
Others, miscellaneous.

Granted, there was a time when I swore at FrameMaker, but that stopped
after a little while. Word just never stops giving. ahem!

By the way... apropos of nothing much, I just now clicked to forward an
e-mail (in Outlook) and got a message saying that "Word might not have
sufficient memory to complete the task" (This is Win XP and I've got 2GB
of memory - currently no Word documents so it's acting ONLY as the
Outlook editor; other than that, I've got one browser with four tabs
open to static pages, one command-prompt window (doing nothing), one
PuTTY session (no activity), and Flare (with static views on four
topics, no activity). Somehow, Word is implicated in me having to shut
everything down to reboot.
Big surprise there.
