| Really, *why* would anyone want to [ generate ] Word?
I have NO idea!
trying asking the people for whom the documents are being
generated why they _insist_ on M$-Worthless encryption?
the original poster mentioned something about the version
control policies at the company involved, and suggested
not asking why.
in my case, for the times I had to do it, I did ask the
document-requesters ‶why?”. I never ever got a sensible
answer. the “answer” was usually similar to “because”
(plus an insistence it had to M$-Worthless, and PDF or
plain text would not do). no amount of asking “why?”
again would elicit anything useful. fscking idiots!
