Import Full Formated Text

I guess since I am more of the creative type and  work with clients 
that supply content then this is a big matter for me. I want to 
generally be able to add anything I can to a project and set it up as 
an interactive application. I DON'T want to have to recreate from 
scratch all of my clients documents, etc.

I am in negotiations with two book publishers that want to turn a 
couple of their books into interactive stories complete with 
animations, text, audio and movies. I will create the animation, audio 
and movies since they don't exist but the text they used to print the 
books with is already formatted in electronic format and I just want to 
be able to cut and paste and/or import hundreds of pages of text into 
text fields and move on - instead I have to start from scratch with 
formating etc.

QUESTION: Two people have said "you can't create a fully-functional 
word processor" - Is this a license issue. I must not have read that 
part if it is. I am lazy at times in reading small print so I must have 
missed this. HHMMMM. Now I want to know what else I can't do......

Thanks for all of your input, I guess I need to put this to bed.

Thanks Tom
