I took the liberty of emailing Pamela Jones when this came up earlier,
because I remembered that Word messed it up pretty badly.

It seems there's not much by way of official guidance, but she came back
with this. I'm a WordPerfect fan, so if you want me to run some stuff
past the WP wordcount setup, I'm quite happy to do so.

Just make sure that footnotes work easily. That is the biggie, and
headers. You see the headers on the court documents in the SCO saga.
Make sure they can do that easily.

Another thing lawyers need is to share a document with others and have
redlining so everyone knows at a glance where the changes are and who
made them.

If you are interested in what lawyers love, look at WordPerfect. They
have it about perfect.
