Yeah, I can see your dilemma. Is that Word Perfect that you're using? I haven't used that program since I was in 12th grade ('96).
I don't know of any other word processing programs that you can just get for free. Try CNet downloads or something...then there is always one of the P2P programs where you could get one of the big boys...but I didn't tell you about it.
Is there any way you can find a computer with Word or even maybe Microsoft Works that you can just cut and paste your document into?
