    I think the answer lies in a bit of history. Clarisworks was changed 
to Appleworks after Bill Gates bought into Apple & the old Appleworks; 
which worked on the Apple //; was abandoned after Quality Computers in 
Detroit was sold and no longer had any interest in Apples. The 
Clarisworks name was changed, but evidently the programme stayed pretty 
much the same and the file type "cwk" is evidence of that; it would have 
entailed some major programming changes that were not justifiable cost wise.
    BTW I think I should come over some time & do a little upgrading & 
Mac O/S  cleaning for you. Erics detail was quite good, but a little 
overwhelming for the computer illiterate.
