The reveal codes feature of WP is fantastic. I remember my first attempts 
to use MS Word (sometimes to help others with problems). Some formatting 
would get applied to the document and it was often impossible to figure out 
what had happened to be able to undo what had just gotten done. In WP I 
never had that problem. When in doubt, turn on "reveal codes" and 
everything affecting the format of the document was right there in front of 

There is talk of adding a "reveal codes" feature to Open Office but I'm not 
going to hold my breath waiting for it.
