If you don't mind the Classic environment (i.e. don't have an Intel Mac - otherwise, see below), you could download the free last version of WordPerfect for the Mac, use it to open any WP Windows documents through version 12, and either work in WPMac or move documents to an OSX app. See http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wordperfectmac/ for the download of the program and the single necessary updater for OS 8/9/Classic, a Spotlight plugin for Tiger, over a hundred third-party utilities and an active discussion forum. WP runs without problems in Tiger. The forum is especially active these days discussing Basilisk and SheepShaver, two solutions for Classic on Intel Macs.
