Greetings --

1) Go to store/shop that sells computer software.

2) Purchase either Microsoft Word as a stand-alone application, or a
copy of either the Microsoft Works _Suite_ (not the standard Works) or
the Microsoft Office suite. (The Works Suite is probably the best
value.)

3) Return home.

4) Insert installation CD in PC's CD drive and follow the on-screen
prompts and instructions to install application and desired additional
features.

Neither the Microsoft Office application suite, nor any of its
individual component applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access,
Outlook, etc.), have _ever_ been "part" of *any* Windows operating
system. They are, and always have been, separate applications, that
must be purchased and installed separately.

But it. Word is not part of XP, or any other M$ OS.
