The following URL points to a plug-in that helps to retain the formatting
of documents done in 97 and saved as 95. Here's an excerpt from MS's page:
"This new Word 6.0/95 converter saves Microsoft® Word 97 documents in a
true binary file format with a .doc extension. The original Word 6.0/95
converter that shipped with Microsoft Office 97 saved Word 97 documents as
Rich Text Format(RTF)."
