Beth, I have now forgotten what you want to convert TO, but anyway... I
needed to convert Ventura to Word 6. I saved the file as plain text, loaded
it into Word, and wrote a macro to read the codes and strip them out, and
then apply (predefined) styles to the results - the result was 99% OK - only
a few tables went wrong (of course you will prbably have to regarb your
bitmaps, if any)
