1.2Increased performance on "underpowered" machines by making
WideOpen a DDE server. Modified the install program to work with
international versions of Word. Fixed a bug that prevented saving
a file under a different format than the one it was opened in.
Added additional save and open formats. Fixed a bug which made
the Open and Save dialogs always on top of other windows.
1.1:Added informative dialog boxes if WIDEN.EXE is not found
where it should have been installed. Fixed a synchronization bug
that occasionally caused FileOpen to do nothing. Made the
installation and deinstallation macros more robust. Renamed to
WideOpen from Widen. Fixed a few typos.
