No, I don't have Word installed (heaven forfend !).
The Wordpad version I have is
  5.1 build 2600.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158: Service Pack 2
in case that might be the difference.

Just to be sure I've said it right :
 Run the script as in Chipp's original email
 Wordpad shows "hello world" - no formatting or anything, just plain 
looking text
 OO 1.1 shows the same
 Pure text editors (emacs, notepad, etc. ....) show
{\rtf\ansi
hello world
\par }
