• have the very same version of Microsoft Word 2003 on two similar computers
  • have the same font set on both, and globally the same settings
  • create a new Word document on the first one ; spend a while on the layout of the page because it's an important document
  • save it on the network
  • download it on the second computer and open it with Word 2003
  • scream discovering the layout of the page is different and you have no idea why !
  • cast a spell on Microsoft and light a candle because PDFMaker is available...
  • throw away Word forever for this kind of important document
