Just tried this, and then tried 4 different docx files. All 4 say
'Read Error: Unable to read data from file' or somesuch. Fully updated
8.04. These are random files from clients. If docx is "supported", its
not ready for prime time. This is not a huge deal for me. If I never saw
another docx file, I'd be tickled. I can always find other ways. Its
an annoyance more than anything.
