I agree with Rich ... .WRI files are useless without Windows ... and NO IT
IS NOT A WORLD STANDARD !!!!!! and will never be thank goodness ... some
people remain intelligent independent thinkers.

The list could be just as useful in a .TXT or .RTF format, which is a far
more world standard than .WRI will ever be, and is readable in multiple
word processors on multiple platforms.
