Charles, I respectfully disagree. Just like websites, many Office docs
(including PowerPoint) are embellished by good design. My father is no
designer, yet he works hard to create Word docs with his own look and
feel focussed on usability. I'm always on the lookout for a really nice
crisp proposal format for Word. And PowerPoint (another part of Office)
even has a 3rd party market for 'new looks.'
