Ah, Wordstar. I still love that program. After using pirated copies for 
way too long, I finally got a decent paying job and bought a copy of 
Wordstar 7.0D for Dos. Probably just about the last copy they sold 
too... ;'p

I still have it if you ever need to get at those docs - it does a 
reasonable rtf export IIRC. I keep it installed somewhere at all
times for nostalgia's sake. Right now I have a dos only SunPCi installation
for Wordstar and Medley Lisp.

Live like you will never die, love like you've never been hurt, dance
like no-one is watching.
