If it is ever ported I hope it isn't as bad a port as Word is. Word behaves like windows, for example when you press down it doesn't move to the end of the line, and when you select one line of text it selects the carriage return at the end which it should NOT do.
And no, these aren't covered in the prefs.
Using so many piss poor porting jobs like Mozilla makes me tentative about supporting future ports.
There is a commandline utility called antiword, (available from either versiontracker or stepwise, I forget) which will convert a Word file to text or postscript. Not exactly ideal, but at least it will get the information into a readable form.
