Well, StarOffice was free, now, I guess, Sun sells it, but it was made by
the group that makes OpenOffice, or something like that. I have the old
free copy on an old machine and it was StarOffice then, but it's Sun's baby
and I don't follow the funny pages well enough to know what is going on with

StarOffice maintain styles to some extent and could save a workable document
from a vexed (hexed, perhaps?) document that required some editing, but it
wasn't as bad as trying to rebuild from text or nothing. StarOffice saved
me on many occasions.
