Unless she does things that are fancy with Office2000 OpenOffice will

if you have a lot of embedded graphics and tables.

Much less headache! And as an added bonus, no more listening to her 
mutter under her breath deprecations upon the whole of the computing 
industry as she waits for Widows to boot. :)
