Actually, the KILLER feature of WordPerfect was always its markup mode.
And the sooner we can get that (reveal codes) working in Writer, the
better!!! Okay, I might be an old-school typist, but imho pure wysiwyg
is an AWFUL idea. Dragging stuff around with a mouse is an awful way of
getting stuff in the right place!
I've spent my own money on WordPerfect in the past, and would do so
again if I had the money to spare - that feature is THAT important to
me. Unfortunately, because MS view WP as dangerous competition, my old
copies don't work (very well) any more. Seriously, markup-mode IS a
killer feature. (Unfortunately, today's vulgate have never known
anything other than wysiwyg and don't know what they're missing :-(
