FYI. One thing Eric didn't mention is that Caolan's been working with us to
convert MSWordView into a library called libwv, which is the engine at the
core of our Word importer as of this week's 0.7.4 release. You can't get
more compatible than that. :-)
I'm quite certain that he'll be able to hand us information about tables in
Word97 (as well as Word 95 and Word 6) as soon as we're able to use that
information to format them properly. At this point, the hard work to be
done is all inside AbiWord, not in Caolan's code.
