I thought all you lawyer types had to stick with WP5 because any and
all versions of Word were so fast and loose with automatic reformatting
that it was literally too risky to use for legal documents.

Says more about the seller, and the sad history of WordPerfect as a
company - they produced some great software, which didn't need to be
updated often, had all the features anyone really wanted, and so they
went broke and sold out to Corel.
