    Word processing

    I'm currently using Open Office Text for word processing on my iMac but the dictionary and grammar checker is poor. Have used Microsoft word on a PC which was good, however I've read poor reviews of the Word Mac version. Any suggestions of a first class word processing package would be welcome, must have good grammar checker and capable of using Shorter Oxford English Dictionary.
    Many thanks

    I find Word for Mac perfectly useable. If you are hoping that it will be like the Windows version in design then think again, but it's a capable word processor and as with the Windows version, you can customize which dictionary it uses. Pages by Apple is also very popular, and quite cheap. It uses the Dictionary built-in to the OS, and this can be customized to use the Oxford English Dictionary via the Dictionary Application.
