+ - Modern Microsoft Word Does Not Reliably Read Earlier Formats: A 1989 Print Test->

Submitted by badger.foo
badger.foo (447981) writes "Prompted by a fabulous rant by Charlie Stross named Why Microsoft Word must Die, Peter Hansteen dug out from his archives the simplest possible 1989-vintage Microsoft Word .DOC document, and has the data to prove that newer versions or Microsoft Word do in fact not reliably read files from earlier versions. Case in point: An ASCII table print test generated and saved as .DOC in 1989."
