This has wondered aways from DSSSL, but I thought that I would post
the following for the poor guy that is trying to do MSWord->DocBook.

   wv 0.6.1
   Dom Lachowicz <cinamod at> - October 16th 2000, 23:57

   wv (formerly known as MSWordView) is a library that
   understands the Microsoft Word 2000, 97, 95 and 6 file
   formats and is able to convert Word documents into
   HTML, which can then be read with a browser. It also
   allows other programs access to word documents for the
   purpose of converting them to other formats and is
   currently being used by Abiword as its word importer.

   Changes: More output formats, more supported platforms,
   and better handling of Word 5 and Word 2 docs.
