cross-reference links?

I use Word 5.1 for the Mac. It does have the capability to define
electronic cross-reference links both within the same doc and across docs.

> Can Word for Mac automatically generate a TOC? index?

Yes, it generates both. Of course, you do the work up front. For the TOC,
you can either use predefined styles for your headings. Word then generates
the TOC at the beginning of your doc, using the heading levels you selected
(1-9) for your TOC. Or, you can insert TOC markers in your document.

As for the index, you insert markers in your document around the word(s) or
phrase you want to include in your index. Word generates a formatted index
at the end of your doc.

Also, you can link documents and then Word can generate a TOC and (I
believe) an index for those linked docs.

> Does Word for Mac support Master- and sub- documents?
You can create a "master" document and save it in a format that Word
refers to as "stationery". This can include page layout settings, styles,
headers and footers. Whenever you open this stationery doc, it opens as a
new (untitled) doc.
