I can't speak for WordPro, but when I used AmiPro, I found that it's files
were very much like AbiWord or RTF, with formatting inserted in pure ascii
format, rather than smiley faces. I was pleasantly surprised that I could
open an AmiPro document in MS Notepad and edit it.

But, alas, I also agree that there are other features that y'all need to
work on instead of trying to convert to every possible file format,
especially since all wp's should be able to translate to RTF.
