But isn't Thomasja's problem far more fundamental? Wouldn't Amazon be doing a better job by accepting input in RTF, in PDF, or one version of Word without doing any tampering? Kindle is profitable enough to pay for a bit more coding.
I haven't afforded upgrades since Word 97, and one of the reasons is that I dislike Word's implementation of Styles. I have 20 home-grown templates which do generally stick to their assigned Styles, but Normal.dot, used for miscellaneous writings, doesn't seem able to hold fast to the changes I "add to template". And as for setting tabs .... But I will study those three references: now that we have an open file format they might convince me to upgrade.
