Some things -- perhaps most things -- do.  I was using it to read Word
and Powerpoint today, also.  However, I can't save files in Powerpoint
format. That's serious.  (I posted about this a few weeks ago -- I get
the error message "Error saving the document ...: Write Error.  The
file could not be written."  I can save the file in odp format, but
that doesn't do much good in the real world...
