Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

Read and I would like to thank everyone who helped bring this book to fruition. Stephanie McComb, our Acquisitions Editor, is such a pleasure to work with that we actually enjoyed the process of negotiating contracts and submission dates. She cheerfully fielded our many questions and made every effort to put together the best team possible for this book.

We want to thank the folks at Corel who helped us sort through the questions we had about WordPerfect 11 and 12. A special thanks goes to Mark Rathwell and Cindy Howard (Program Managers for WordPerfect Office) who acted as our point people, and who never failed to provide the answers and information we asked for.

We also gratefully acknowledge the kind and generous support of the Corel C-Techs and other volunteers on the Corel newsgroups. They spend countless hours answering questions and troubleshooting problems. They don't quit until they find a solution, or track down the source of the difficulty, and they should all be commended for their patience and perseverance.

Last, but not least, we want to extend a warm thanks to our friends on WordPerfect Universe. The talent pool on that site is nothing short of amazing. For the first time, we were able to tap into that talent and recruited two of the best to do the technical edit on this book. Thanks to Cyndy Zook and Charles Girard for their attention to detail, and for the friendly and helpful comments they made. Thanks also to Ian McCreath for his important feedback on WordPerfect's implementation of XML.

From Laura:

I could not ask for a more understanding and supportive family. They try not to roll their eyes when I promise that this project won't be as time-consuming as the last one. I especially want to thank my husband, Jeff, for doing more than his share of the chores, and for entertaining the children on the weekends so I could hide in my office and work. I also want to extend my warmest thanks to my writing partner, Read. We're a great team and I'm thrilled we were able to work together again on this revision. I hope we are still doing this when WordPerfect Office 2010 comes out!

From Read:

No acknowledgment would be complete without thanking those closest to you who support you when you've gone into hiding to write. My wife, Sue, is always supportive, recognizing when it's time to yank me out of the basement to watch a movie (or mow the lawn!). I probably should also acknowledge my grandkids who made taking on this project necessary (so I can retire closer to them). Finally, I was delighted to have the chance to work once again with Laura on this revision project. Not only is she a great team leader, but she's also as excited about WordPerfect as I am.
