registered myself to two new discussion forums, the first being
devoted to using Apple Macintosh in Humanities - to which I thought
my message was posted -, and the latter being yours. So please accept
my humblest apologies for this bizarre introduction of myself.

many Word files, would you mind explaining or at least pointing me at
a guide to converting Word files into WordPerfect.

dictionaries. After some fiddling with WordPerfect I have the feeling
that the Word support is superior (which is to be expected from a
more recent and world standard application.) For instance, using
WordPerfect in French and checking the spelling resulted in many
false errors, as if WordPerfect could not understand grammatical
situations or plurals.
Another issue is the compatibility of WordPerfect 3.5 with the
Windows X3 application suite.

than playing that kind of games, and second, because WordPerfect
would not be the ideal platform for sounding the troll alarm. I hope
that answered your question.

My experience has been that one should always add the DOS extension to
any file name which will be opened on a PC. That's the only way the poor
thing has of knowing what to do with the file.
