I just modified a previous letter, which was a previously sent FAX,

something about java, and the whole document disappeared.  I
have since discovered that the document can be "recovered,"
altho I didn't know it at the time, so I typed it over again using
WordPerfect in Windows.  I really don't like your program
much, but it's almost the only game in town on Linux, and this
behavior does not make me any fonder of it!  (The other
options are worse.)

Maybe the mistake was to send this fax document before saving it?
Anyway, since java functionality seems to be the cause, java may be
the partial/primary cause of the document crash. Also, could be a m$
problem, assuming the document was first created within m$. Tried
abiword, or enscript?

I saved and sent the original.  I had to make a modification and send
the mod. No Microsoft product involved.  I do not even own a M/S
word processor.  I have tried abiword, and it is terrible.  I haven't
heard of enscript, and I will look into it.  I sure wish there was a
new version of WordPerfect for Linux--the original from 1995 won't
load. (Unlike many Linuxers, I am not averse to paying for a
product that does the job I need and does it better than the
"home-grown" product.)
