         That's if you run AbiWord on the same machine, under the
same OS, right? How about if you run it on a different machine,
under linux?

         I've been wanting to make up some business cards -- or maybe
retiree cards -- but if I have to use the Abominable OS to do it,
what do I gain by using AbiWord instead of MSWormOS's app?? I don't
even have AbiWord -- or anything else except proprietary topo map
software -- on my XP machine, in a deliberate attempt to keep that
machine not even booted, except when I have to use it.

         So is there a way for linux AbiWord to do it without
reference to anything in MS?

         If not, I agree that it'd be nice to see some developer take
an interest <grin>
