If I recall, we worked on that class for Litton, so some military
contractors used it too, I guess. Both Office Writer and MultiMate touted
themselves as Wang WP clones, but one of them used F10 for Execute and the
other used F10 for Cancel! Used to give me fits trying to remember one from
the other while teaching a class.

I *do* think that government was the sole user of Enable. It was one of
those do-everything packages similar to MS Works, but it did nothing well.
In the WP package, spaces wrapped independent of the words they followed, so
you couldn't even guarantee a justified left margin. I'd call it a dog, but
that'd give dogs a bad rap. <g>
