Thanks! I am currently working on a grant report in Word (alas...),  
and that means fighting most of the day against Word's stubbornness  
into selecting whole words and adjoining punctuation when I'm trying  
to select just a few characters to edit them only, turning in-text  
fractions (like 1/2) into small fractions, etc.

Eventually I had to give up and converted (which of course meant a  
fair share of manual adjustments) the report to OpenOffice[*] and  
Pages so that I can actually work on it (using BootCamp to boot in  
Vista and use the Windows version of Word 2007, more powerful than the  
Mac version of Word 2008, helped a bit but not that much).  
Unfortunately, this also means that I'll have eventually to convert  
back to Word before sending my contribution back to the grant  

I've nothing against auto-indent in itself (which is pretty convenient  
most of the time), but because of such Word experiences, and similar  
past experiences with Alpha, talks of automatic formatting feels to me  
like waving a red flag.


[*] At last the just released 3.0rc2 Mac Aqua version seems stable and  
convenient enough for daily use.
