Thanks for the info. The more that I pick through the source code of Abiword,
the more that I'm convinced that Abiword is the way to go. Just the fact that
the XP pieces are seperated from the platform specific code makes it worth
while to experiment with.
Unfortunatly, it looks like the plug in for abimoz only works on Linux, and Red
Hat at that.
If any of the Abiword developers would like to contribute, either through
suggestions, code, or documents, my ears are wide open.
