I use WinWord 6 in conjunction with Wextech's Doc-To-Help and have
not had any problems at all! IMHO Doc-To-Help also makes it much
easier to convert long manuals into readable, user-friendly, on-line
help systems. In addition, since my file sizes get to be huge, I use
another utility called Quicture which allows me to offload bitmaps
(or screen grabs of dialogs and windows, which is really why long
documents become so cumbersome!).

And for those folks wondering... No, I do not work for Wextech! I
work for a software developer in San Diego and several of our
products are Windows-based...
