Hi Doug, all

If you save your file in .doc 1997~2000 (or 1997~2003) every program will
able to open it. Never use .docx.

Actually this is not true either. Saving as doc (but especially in docx) in
LO sometimes produces a document that opens correctly in LO but can not be
opened in MS Office (OR the MS warning message *wording* might lead the user
to think that it can't/shouldn't be opened).

In any case, regardless of who is to be blamed, there is a "digital divide"
that prevents MS and LO users to communicate...

IMHO the only way to change this is to send ODF files and ask the users at
the other end to install a free ODF compatible software (LO or other) since
it is costless, while refusing to do so means that on your end you would
have to *buy* a software license from MS...
