Come on Joey. No one from Cox would do something like that...

Actually, it's not 100% compatible. I got a .doc file from Cox yesterday that
had a table and some background shading, and OpenOffice 1.0 couldn't render
the text inside the table cells. WordPerfect 9.0 couldn't either, for that
matter. I will admit that it was an advertising letter for the most part, and
no one should send fluffy stuff like that to someone else if it's in a
business context, anyhow.
