Are you sure that I can read what you wrote without causing Word to
crash?  I'm in doubt.

A few hours ago I tried to load a Word file someone else had written
at work.  Word crashed (invalid memory page access in MSWORD.EXE).  

The system became unstable, i.e. when I tried to attach a file to a
mail message, it was not possible to move into the directory where the
file was.  Fortunately that worked after rebooting the system.

Obviously, you had been in luck.  Congratulations!

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
