One should remember that new versions of MS-Office often have problems with 
doucments created in earlier versions (->Access).  The worst case is people 
with different versions working on the same document ... 

But in case of Graphics Design/ Layout I think it is very uncommon to use 
different versions of the program.  I hear even in DTP there are differences 
between Pagemaker for Mac and PC, how can we expect OO or Star Office to work 
with it?
