How come no-one counts the amount of time it takes to try to make M$W  
work correctly? How long did it take to learn to make a style file  
that didn't lead to unexpected results the next time you used it? I  
tried, I really did, and gave up in total disgust. All that time  

After years away from TeX I came back to Gerben's distribution,  
iTeXMac and then TeXShop and I'll never look back!

Good Luck,
