    antiword doesn't seem to pick up any of this hidden info from any Word .doc files I have. Hmm.

    AFAIK it has been fixed in later releases. The article also mentions Office 97 - not exactly the most recent version.

    How many years (and what other surpising and terrifying incident) people will need, to finally learn write documents using LaTeX and NOT MSWord?

    i think people will need to hear about this "LaTeX" before it could be popular. The only latex i know of is not a computer program.

    I wonder whether this was ever a problem in the mac versions of word, or whether this is partly a problem of the Windows operating system.
