Why won't Nisus Writer read my Microsoft Word 98 files?

The best way to get documents to and from Nisus Writer and other word processors (Claris Works, MS Word, WordPerfect) is by using the third-party tool MacLink Plus 11.x from <A HRef="http://www.dataviz.com">DataViz</A>. <pre> DataViz<BR> 55 Corporate Drive<BR> Trumbull, CT 06611<BR> phone: 203-268-0030<BR> FAX: 203-268-4345 </pre> We wish we had the ability to do this directly within Nisus Writer. However, we cannot use the time and effor needed to "chase" the changing file formats of the various word processors when someone else in the industry makes it their corporate reason for existence. We (on the other hand) have maintained essentially the same file format for the past 5 versions of Nisus Writer.
