The PS worked fine for me.  But if that doesn't work, may I reccomend
AbiWord to view the MS Word format?  (http://www.abisource.com).  

The 2.3 restriction refered to is that hardware implementations are
prohibited.  This seems like a complicated question.  On one hand, the
derivation seems tenuous at best.  On the other hand, we wouldn't want to
open ourselves up to "this program may be distributed in modified form,
but only if the source is in CRAY YMP-1 assembly."
