Donald--

I can't give you the benefit of any experience with this product, but I
did recently receive a mailing from Advanced Computer Innovations (30
Burncoat Way, #A5 / Pittsford, NY 14534-2216), advertising two programs,
R-Doc/X and WordPort, which they claim convert documents "with only a
few keystrokes" between "more than 32 different [word-processing] programs"
including all the ones I've ever heard of and many I haven't. Price is about
$150 per program, or $195 for both. This is not advertising, since I'm not
*recommending* the programs. By the way, you might also direct your query
to SOFTREVU@BROWNVM, a Listserv-based discussion group for exchange of
information concerning computer software.

Where else could the American Association for Artificial
Intelligence meet but in... Walt Disney World Village? Is there a
more artificial place on earth than that?

Very seriously yours 8-))))

I have read (on the Nota Bene list) a good deal of positive comment on
Word for Word as a word-processor converter, but I have no personal
experience with it.

The journal _Monatshefte_, published at the Dept. of German, University of
Wisconsin, 818 Van Hise Hall, 1220 Linden Drive, Madison, WI 53706, has
been using the program _Word for Word_ for the last two years for conversion
of both articles and reviews, with reasonable success. With the advent of
the MacIntosh SuperDrive, it is also *relatively* easy to convert even
MacIntosh MS Word/WordPerfect files into the DOS format of your choice.
For more info, contact the current Editorial Assistant, Ralph Morris, at
MONA@MACC.WISC.EDU or voice (608) 262-3008.

I've been very pleased with Word for Word Professional.

Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, has a good program. You may
want to correspond with Barbara Halporn (halporn@ucs.indiana.edu) who is
the subject librarian for the field of history and philosophy of science.
I think her husband teaches in the program. Hope that helps. Good luck.
