hey, thats wonderful! i'm so glad it got it working... glad my memories of 
struggling with OO in the past came to some good use :)

its a really nice wordprocessor - the nicest i've seen for GNU/Linux yet, and 
it can export to .doc format which is pretty darn rare! 

hmm.... i havent tried changing the screenfont... not sure if its in 
preferences (its a while since i used OO) or if you'd need to hack the 
code....!!!! ;-) probably it would be quite a simple hack though.... 

best wishes
