Seems good to me

*Every* single person I know outside the geek world uses Word for almos every single task that has more than 20% text in it.
Moving that to the web is always a PITA when every word processor creates html pages full of "custom" css styles whithin the page, clashing with any other style already in the site or CMS; and I've never found a way to get a _clean_ old-fashion html output.
So I for one would welcome such feature in word processors, specially in OO and Abiword.

It's true. I know someone who keeps one word document per person per phone number. I.E. John Doe.doc contains 555-5555. I know another who will keep one or two links in a word document instead of bookmarking them.
