Hi Peter,

It may be instructive that a someone last year wrote a short VB

meeting. I'm sure it has long been superseded but this is not
rocket science.

I heard a dark rumor that said script was going to be distributed as a Word macro virus, to go off on Mr. Bill Gates's birthday, converting the world's Word files into XML in one fell swoop.

Maybe it's true. Maybe you have the virus. Except you're running Unix. A pity.
