Does anyone know if Word 7 supports the importing of GIF files?
My workplace uses both Word and FrameMaker. I would like to be able to use GIF
files for FrameMaker paper documents, FrameViewer online documentation, and
HTML documents. However, we have a problem with people using Word not being
able to use the same images as is. (Of course, we could convert them to TIFF
or some other format.) Any ideas when Microsoft Word might catch up to
FrameMaker in this area?
