Hi Everyone,

One of my clients is interested in my developing a Word template for
them. I've created several for Word 2000 and Word 2003. I do not own
Word 2007.
My question:
Will a template developed in Word 2003 have the same functionality in
Word 2007, including Styles, macros and toolbars?

In particular, if I create a custom toolbar so that users can quickly
insert a figure caption, or apply a style, will the toolbar appear in
Word 2007? I've heard so much about the ribbon feature, I'm not sure how
it will impact toolbars.
