Word format won't work for those of us who aren't
operating-system-impaired, and plain text with an
ASCII art class diagram will be mutilated unmercifully
when opened in Word.

Since the TAs didn't actually edit the files we
submitted last time and sent back a separate grading
sheet, is there any harm in submitting in a format
that Word can't edit (such as PDF, which is at least
halfway-standard, and supported by every platform that
can run GhostScript)?

I know that the spec says it must be editable by Word,
but I've never been one to stick to the spec ;) Along
those lines, can PDF be added as a file format for
future specs?

Thanks,
Jim
