Thank you all for the responses.
It seems a good idea to wait for Office 2000 but I am wondering how fast companies are going to replace their Office 97 setups with this upcoming release. (I'm also wondering what will happen if I try to run both Office 97 and Office 2000 on my PC).
It seems to me that whatever office suite people use, though, it will still be a case of gigo if the presentation of the documents (how they look on paper or on the web) is more important than how it is constructed.
While browsing at Borders recently I found 'Word 97 for Law Firms'
which seems more in line with what I was looking for. (I might go back for that one, at the time I could only afford the new Kurzweil book :)
