WinWord 6.0 should convert WordPerfect 6.0 OK. Not everything will be
great, but it should be close.

The operating rule of thumb is that a word processing program will convert
the major word processors up to the release levels in effect when the word
processor was released.

Because you don't have all the filters, I am wondering if you did a full
installation of WordPerfect 6.0. Sometimes people do a custom installation
to save space and then wonder why they lose some of the features.
