RE: word perfect

It appears that FS hasn't added any support for WordPerfect since
version 10 (just checking my jfw5.1 dir quickly anyway).

If Corel is still following their previous pattern, you need to modify
your registry to make WP 12 use "standard" video output techniques so
that jfw will speak properly.  Below are 3 lines that you could copy and
paste, using any text editor, into a file with a .reg file extension.
Then, once you have it, double click it or run it just like you would
any program and it will make the registry change that I expect WP 12
still needs.  If WP doesn't need this key any longer, this won't hurt
anything, it will just add an unused key in your registry.  Regedit may
ask you if it's ok to do this, depending on your particular version, so
you should choose "yes".

As for your Word question; sure, go ahead and install what you have,
assuming your new pc didn't come with anything newer; but, it's pretty
important to get those Word bug fixes, so I'd buy the latest version as
soon as you can.  You can get it as part of the MS Office Small Business
Suite for around $99.
