Perhaps, then, I misinterpreted Edwin Skau when he wrote, "Ditto when
someone knocks MS Word, specially when they share details." I inferred
from his analogy that he felt Word to be beyond reproach and the
software equivalent of "great music", something that my experience
tells me it isn't!

Using Mr Skau's analogy for a moment, Word is more like Ms Spears. It
does a passable job most of the time but is disposed to occasional
"tantrums", often when they are least convenient!
