Not quite, ww8 is "WinWord8", but handles the Microsoft Word 6, 7 and 
8+ binary formats. To complicate matters it handles Word for Windows 2
file format as well, and some in-betweeny versions.

ww1 is "Word for Windows 1" IIRC and it handles an earlier file format.
I don't know if we can find any word for windows 1 .docs to see if that
filter is still working (and even connected up to anything)
