    Actually, from my experience, abw files are nothing but plain text - no
    binary smiley faces, etc., so with some (okay, a lot of) patience, one could
    open an abw file in plain old NotePad and edit out the formatting codes and
    be left with an unformatted plain text file. Then, open it into any word
    processor in the world and reformat it. Again, it requires a lot of
    patience and may not be worth the effort, but it's nice to know it can be
    done if it has to be.
