Microsoft Word 97-98 Converter -- Microsoft recently posted the final version of the Microsoft Word 97-98 converter. This version replaces the beta released earlier this year and makes it easier for Macintosh Word 5 and 6 users to share files with users of Word 97 and 98. (Microsoft plans to release Word 98 for the Macintosh early in 1998.) The converter requires a 68020-based Mac or better. The converter's Web page has more information and a link to the 813K download. [TJE]
