Subject: Summary of word processors for Chinese


Dear netters,

Some time ago I asked for information about Chinese software for PC,
specifically word processors. I have got quite a few responses, some of
them with information about educational software and others.
I would like to thank everybody who contributed with his/her information
to the creation of the list bellow.
