Ok, I cannot resist rising to this...

Quite a few years ago, I had to prepare some assembly instructions for a 
mineral ore separator. The client mandated Word, probably because it was the 
only document preparation program they had ever heard of.

The version of Word I was using had the interesting property of consigning 
diagrams that overflowed the page into some Byte World in the Sky: that is, as 
added text caused them to flow off the end of the current page, they failed to 
appear on the following page.

I had (gasp) paid support for this version of Word, so I rang Microsoft and 
explained the issue. After a long pause, the M$ support person said - and I am 
not making this up - "It sounds as if you are trying to do something that is 
too complex for Word [yeah, like words and pictures?] - have you thought of 
using FrameMaker?"
