I tried it. It's kind of clunky and weird but intriguing. Some of the labels are still in a foreign language. First I thought it was German, but I think it's Norwegian. The default spell check language is Norwegian. It does strange things, such as substituting "/" if you type "--", and it's hard to find out why or how to change it. I think that if there were full attention to these details it would be very successful, as there is a lot to like about the product. It is surprisingly useful for web page design, for example, but the weird aspects made me leave it after a while. -- JULES SIEGEL Apdo 1764 Cancun Q. Roo 77501 Fax1.530.706.8739 Tel 1.52.98 83.36.29
