Sorry, I'm late to this conversation -- why is CrossOver not an
acceptable option?  While I'm no power Word user, I find that the $40
I spent on CrossOver to run OfficeXP was money well spent.  (I had a
task which required Excel, and CrossOver permitted me to run in an
environment I preferred while getting the job done.)
