Uh -- the Hacker's Guide isn't a Word 6 reference per se; it's a
reference to WordBasic, the Word (of that version) programming

Given that there's very little difference between WordBasic for Word 7
and Word 6, you're better off sticking to the Hacker's Guide if that's
what you're thinking of, and looking at the What's New sections of the
WordBasic help.

If you mean a more general "how to" manual for Word, I've had
reasonably good luck with Que's products. Just make sure you get the
full-featured version; they often do a "step-down" manual as well.

And I _wish_ there were going to be a Hacker's Guide for Word 97, but
it doesn't look promising.
