All,

It is my goal some day (and hopefully not before too long) to write my own word processing application that really gives word a run for its money, basically creating the wonder that is Word 5.1 :flower: A little way off though for you.

Some excellent recommendations have been made, Mariner Write gets my heads up for something in between Word and TextEdit.
