    The CVS HEAD version of AbiWord has been doing a very good job importing
    MS Word tables for a long time. I would greatly appreciate people doing
    more testing with it. If you can, please compile the latest CVS and test
    it with your MS Word docs. (See instructions in the developer section of
    the web page on how to compile abiword from CVS.) Please report bugs to
    our bugzilla reporting system. (See the developer section for this too.)

    Thanks very much for you interest in AbiWord.
