"Weird internal politics"?  That got my attention!  Like what?  And where should I look to find out more?

This sort of stuff is always great to share when teaching a class -- wakes 'em up!  I include a section on OpenOffice in my upcoming brief "Sending Files by Web" course.

And thanks for the tip about NeoOffice.  After I incorporated a new Mac into my home network, I installed OpenOffice, but I wouldn't want to inflict its X11 installation requirement on Mac novices...

Best wishes,
Eric S.
