And this a.m. I called Adobe and learned that they currently do not have any
plans to support Word 97. So anyone with Word 97 will have to keep their old
Word 95 around when they want to use a word processor first before loading
into Frame. Adobe also confirmed that the saved file format from 97 to 95
isn't clean, and isn't a true 95 or 6.0 version of Word.
