	Thanks for a good article.  What exactly are we up against
with the open documents?  Are they similar to PDF which covers a huge
range of possibilities.  Some PDF's are nothing more than image scans
of a printed page while others have actual searchable text embedded in
the document and can be read with programs like pstotext.  The catdoc
application reads many Microsoft Word files and mplayer makes us able
to listen to streaming audio most of the time.
