I want to offer a hearty "second" to this recommendation.  So far
I've purchased the complete Office 95 with print docs, and Office
97 Pro CD only, for $31 and $34 respectively, including shipping.
These are full, not upgrade, versions, and I've already ordered
the SR-2 replacement CD from Microsoft based on the second one,
so they are fully legal.  If they have what you want, they are
hard to beat!  And the auction part was fun... <bg>

I'm not familiar with this one, but I'll check it out next time.
BTW, if any of you need 17" SVGA monitors so you can see the 
FrameMaker designers at the same time as your document <g>, Sams 
Club has a good one, CTX, for a mere $239; I'm using it now.
At that price, a dual-monitor setup makes lots of sense...
