The file formats of the two programs are the same. The macro language has
changed a little. There are some user interface changes. The RTF format has
changed a bit. Some people may disagree, but despite some improvements and
new features, Word 7 is similar in functionality to Word 6.0c. If you want
to use something like the latest version of RoboHelp, then I'm pretty sure
you don't have a choice about upgrading.
