In the latest issue of The Mathematica Journal (vol 5 no 2) there is a brief
note indicating that WRI is developing an interface between Mathematica and
Microsoft Word 6.0. The note leaves the impression that version 6.0 is required
and the interface will not work with earlier versions.
While the possibility of using Mathematica from within a word processor is very
interesting. But why select a bloated, undesirable product like Word 6.0?!
There are many, many Word users who have decided not to "downgrade" to Word
6.0, and the prospect of paying for 6.0 PLUS the product being prepared by WRI
is not very appealing.
Perhaps there are technical reasons why Word 6.0 is the only possibility, but
otherwise PLEASE consider doing something compatible with Word 5.x or Word
How do others feel about this?
