Interesting article, especially the comments that follow. Read it all here:

These are the kinds of comments that made me think I had to use HTML to format my ebooks, and people around here said, "What? No. Just upload a Word file and it will be fine."

There seems to be 500 ways to do one thing, and it's confusing.

About Word specifically. I'm used to the program. It's comfortable, and I won't stop using it. Never could get comfortable with anything else.
