    Microsoft Write Filter

    Imports almost everything except OLE from MS Write (3.0 & 3.1) documents:

    • Character formatting (fonts, bold, italic, underline, superscript, subscript, "(page)" numbering)
    • Optional/Soft Hyphenation
    • Paragraph formatting (alignment, linespacing, indentation, tabulation)
    • Paragraphs with multiple newlines
    • Pagebreaking (at the start or end of the line and on the next line)
    • Images (Standard WMFs, monochrome BMPs, position from left margin)
    • Character Set Conversion
    • Headers & Footers (including whether or not they are printed on first page)
    • Page formatting (margins, positioning of headers & footers, page numbers starting from any number)

    Exports text, images and a useful amount of formatting to MS Write 3.0 documents:

    • This import/export filter pair is almost "symmetric" i.e. export (import (f)) = f
    • It can export everything that the import filter can import except Page Layout
    • Images of various types (e.g. BMP, JPEG, WMF, PNG) are supported
    • Tables are simply dumped out as paragraphs
    • Basic list support
