Atlantis Nova 184.108.40.206 (last freeware version) is a word processor that has quite a bunch of useful features and has an extensive support for MS Word files. It reminds one of Word, surely - same toolbars that became a de-facto standard quite a while ago, almost the same working
field with rulers etc. Of course, as the editor can only read DOC file formats and can save documents in rich or plain text files, it will never substitute MS Word. But in small features, ones that make your work with documents easy, Atlantis Nova surpasses
