      I know that there was print preview, but I seem to recall (though vaguely, I admit), that it was somewhat quirky. Maybe I'm mis-remembering.

      Then we moved on to 6.0 for Windows (strange), and 2.1 (I think it was 2.1, unless it was 2.2; things are getting fuzzy) for the Mac--that was my first Mac version.
