Try ClarisWorks Office 5 ( I use ClarisWorks over
five years now and the hassles people meet with Word are unknown to me.
Though 4 applications (text, spreadsheet, graphics and paint) have been
put into one package, these are so well integrated that you are not
working with several applications, but a single application that does
many different things...

In addition to these kernels a database module has been integrated, where
you can include multimedia fields - not just pictures in all kinds, but
Quicktime movies too. It is simple to use thanks the way in which layouts
for data-entry or search can be presented.

This versatile suite is available for Macintosh, Windows95 and Windows NT
as well...
Text documents may be exported as Word95 to some extend.
And the package IS cheap: abt USD99
