You can tell the "Prof" in class to convert the ms-word files to text.  I 
would assume someone with the brains to become a professor has the minimum 
amount of smarts to convert a file.

         Janina knows about reading PDF files.  I believe we should be 
telling purveyors of PDF to include TXT or HTML files of the same 
materials.  maybe they will get the message?  Well, maybe not.  Guess I 
have to convert the message to PDF first?  Grin.
