            Outline mode in MSWord may not be well implemented, but it is
    NOT stupid! The idea of editing/authoring in an outline mode goes
    back to the 70's/80's (see
    <http://davewiner.userland.com/outlinersProgramming>), and is one
    that I personally subscribe to. It's one of the reasons that I
    fought for, and then got to implement the outliner in Persuasion
    (which PowerPoint then stol :(.

            Also, take a look at <http://www.outliners.com/> for some
    additional comments about outline editing in various fields...
