Microsoft Word -

know are thinking about buying (or switching to) either of these
two word processors, you may want to visit http://www.wpvsword.com/.
The site contains comparisons of the various versions of each

both programs compared certain features of both programs in a
"production environment" in TechnoLawyer (2006); see
thread in WordPerfect Universe.

link to your site (or someone else's) on this page, please drop
an e-mail note to Barry MacDonnell.
The site must offer something to users of WordPerfect
for Windows -- such as WP macros, freeware, shareware, program
add-ins, evaluation programs, user tips, clever templates, etc.
A site that simply offers a few links to other sites, or merely
offers your services for hire, generally will not qualify. Webmasters
and web authors: Please e-mail updated
links and descriptions of the sites on this page.
