judy: Work has largely transferred to LibreOffice, which is free and open source.
Thanks for that info...I'd not heard of it. The reason I installed OO on my sister's laptops is because I thought that my sister had Office on her older laptop and that she had the Office CD. I figured I could then uninstall Starter Office on her new laptop using her Office CD.

Come to discover that she did not have Office on her older laptop (she'd been using WordPad) and Starter Office really is terrible--with that incredibly and increasingly annoying ad window--so OO seemed a reasonable approach and I think will suit my sister just fine given that she's primarily interested in simple wp type stuff for her writing. If OO proves to a problem, I'll look into LibreOffice for her...
