Re: [PLUG] word docs with open office and web sites (slightly OT)

I wonder if it is looking for something in the Word Doc file headers
for something like "Created in..." - perhaps shoot the web masters an
email lettering them know about the bug? They're not validating the
file correctly, clearly, although I'm not familiar with .doc format
and don't know if there is a good way to automatically validate during
an upload process.
