Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

Well, I don't know whether it is something that got in the air at Lotusphere or what, but everybody these days seems to be looking for the ability to export rich text or whole documents to Microsoft Word.  So, before a few hundred more people search the site, here are a few useful links, in no particular order:

Sample database page - This has a lot of samples for use with the Midas Rich Text LSX, but the one you want is called Export to MS Word.  But don't stop there.  Look around and see what other goodies are available if you will already have the tool.
Midas Rich Text LSX page - This is the main page for the Midas Rich Text LSX, just in case you wanted to take a look.
Evaluation request - If you want to actually try exporting to Word with Midas.
Order form - Damn the torpedoes!  Full steam ahead!  You just want to buy it right now, as you can't wait another day to start exporting to Word.
Exporting to MS Word - A Blog Perspective - A post I wrote a while back about this subject, with some nice visuals.

So there you have it.  Ready, willing and able to export!

I found a link to a handy site for those of us who are color impaired (by which I mean that I am both actually color-blind and a complete "fashion idiot" when it comes to matching colors).  The site is ColorBlender.  As the site says:
To get started, choose a preferred color using the color picker below, and a 6-color matching palette (a "blend") will be automatically calculated.
It makes it easy to find colors that "go together" in ways that I wouldn't have guessed, and has useful extras for people who are beyond my level of sophistication, such as those below.  Hmm, perhaps I should take a look at the colors on our website.
