I posted this in the Software forum regarding TextEdit's Word compatibility. It seems more appropriate for it to be in this thread. Whatever. Here it is.
Here are two examples of TextEdit and Word.
First, a Word document containing charts, page numbers, etc.
Word is on the left, TextEdit is on the right.
The second is a standard document.
Sorry for the poor quality but I didn't want to screw up thread with giant pics. Full size images be here:http://www.angelfire.com/ut2/inactio...dTextEdit1.jpghttp://www.angelfire.com/ut2/inactio...dTextEdit2.jpg
Oh yeah, if you edit the document with charts and hyperlinks in TextEdit, when you open it in Word you lose all the embedded information and it'll look the same as the document when opened in TextEdit. It works great for standard Word documents though.
