Thanks, Gene--that explains it. My last in-depth encounters with Word
were on Word 2000. That was the last version I owned personally and
also the last version used by companies I did work for--several of
whom told me they "didn't see any reason to upgrade to Office 2003."

Now if they could just fix autonumbering, master documents ...

Frankly, I'd just as soon use OpenOffice as Word, given a choice. I'm
also not a fan of the ribbon interface in the few times I've used Word
2003, but I suppose it may grow on you over time.
