It has been years since I've much bothered with Word, but I seem to
recall a setting thet allowed either fixed-pixel widths and flexible
-- or something. The intent was to allow decent printing to clunky
dotmatrix with unit pixels, and decent printing to the new-fangled
laser and inkjets w/ their higher res. Spacing was most definitely a
pain, as all lines reflowed drastically.
Whether this was an Application setting that would affect docs even
though they were made in the other mode, I don't remember.
Suggestions by others sound good too.
