I've read quite a few descriptions of how people have kludged
conditional text in MS Word. They remind me of discussions of how it
can handle numbered paragraphs, nested lists, and long documents
without problems.

It's hard for me to imagine that anyone who has used FrameMaker's
conditional text would think that Word's IF fields were a
near-equivalent.
