Seriously, it is a huge issue. When Office 2007 was first released, there were many, many mainstream articles about how broken Office 2007's "compatibility mode" actually was. Office 2007 had a very poor uptake rate, due in large part to this very issue.

Where have you been while all this has been happening?
