I dont know if this will help anyone or not, if not then ah well, but I'm posting this in the hopes that it will. Some/most of the tutorials on A2files are saved in a version of WordPad that will not open on Windows XP, for example the Milkshape3d tutorials on there always open with the message "cannot load Word for 6.0 files" (or something to that effect. The link below contains a file and the intructions for it that will allow the XP version of WordPad to open documents saved in the 6.0 version. WordPad Cannot Open Word for Windows 6.0 Files I hope this helps someone but if not like I said, ah well. :) :cya: Dan

Never noticed it myself, they open fine in OpenOffice.

Kind of ironic, Microsoft has trouble opening their own file formats... :rolleyes:

Not only better, but free as well. The files should come in handy for those that dont want to download open office though. :nodding:
