I really don't think this is a fair statement. I teach RoboHELP classes
regularly, and intermediate-level knowledge of Word is a pre-requisite for
the class. On occasion, we have had students who are very proficient with
Word on Macintosh but had no prior ewperience with Word for Windows. In
every case, these students really struggled to keep up with the class. I
haven't used Word on Mac for many years, but I think there must be quite a
few differences between the Mac and Windows versions! (One of which is, no
doubt, just as Sean wrote, that the Windows version crashes more often!)
