You are still using LaTeX2e.  \centerline is a macro defined in plain
TeX which can be used in LaTeX.  Its definition is:

  \def\centerline#1{\hbox to \hsize{\hss#1\hss}}

where \hsize is the width of the colunm and \hss is horizontal
shrinkable glue.  If it's used at the begin of an indented paragraph,
it should be preceded by \noindent.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
