RE: officeXP vs office 2000

Fyi, you'll never need to pay hundreds of dollars for office xp as the
street price for office xp (small business edition) is only $99 (I
believe this does not include power point).

Someone else has already mentioned that office xp includes the OCR
feature you mentioned.

Hth,
