  Ooh!  My topic!
  Most word processors will call it "Plain Text", or "ASCII".  You can also
use a text editor (as distinct from a word processor in that it edits ONLY
plaintext files, or at least that is its primary mode).  DOS EDIT is one such;
allow me to recommend any incarnation of vi; links from my page at
