As a quick example - which illustrates its power - I seem to remember a
post to this list a week or so ago which said "if the first thing in a
writer document is a table, how do I put something in front of it?".
Word struggles with this, writer struggles with it ...

In WordPerfect, in RevealCodes, just click *in front* of the [table-on]
code, and start typing ... easy peasy !!!
