Word 5.1a patcher available

Word 5.1a patcher available -- On Friday the 13th, Tony Huang posted to the Info-Mac digest, saying "Believe or not, there's already a updater for the newly-released Word 5.1. Word 5.1a fixes a bug in Word 5.1 during fast-saving when headers or footers are involved."

Order the free updater from Microsoft Customer Service by calling the number below, or download it from sumex. The 10K file is archived on <sumex-aim.stanford.edu> as:

info-mac/app/word-51a-updater.hqx

To address the prevalent net question about spending $15 on the upgrade from Word 5.0 to 5.1, we at TidBITS feel the upgrade is worth it for the serious Word user. Although the tone of the program has not changed, Microsoft reportedly fixed a number of bugs and added a few features, perhaps most important of which is the ability to print even or odd pages. Welcome to the 1990's!

Microsoft Customer Service -- 800/426-9400
