    I was impressed that they were so receptive in the first place. They may
    be a Linux vendor but Hancom Word is proprietary software. I am not going
    to push my luck. When I am representing just myself I will be a smart ass
    but i make a concerted effort to be polite when i am representing the
    Abiword community.

    And if I did as you suggest I would also have to file a bug in Abiword
    saying the Abiword developers should go and add .abw export to OpenOffice
    and KWord (and similarly that the developers should help
    improve our support).
