You should most definitely upgrade to KDE 2.2.1 and KOffice 1.1 in that

I've used KWord to write short papers (a few pages, with embedded
objects). Towards the end of this year, I'm planning to use KWord for some
very substantial documents of 20+ pages.

Kword uses ispell, and the dictionairy also produces sensbile suggestions
for me. There is no thesauraus, or grammar checker yet though.

I have used Star Office 5.2 for substantial documents (30+ pages) in the
past, including colours, fonts, tables, etc. It worked OK, as long as its
may eccentricities and idiosyncracies don't bother you massively.
