A note on whether you should switch from Word to WP. My officemate did
that recently, and then switched back after a few weeks because WP was
too buggy, and didn't do some formatting things as nicely or easily as
Word. So while I agree that Word 6 is bulky and slow, you might want
to take a close look before switching.
