Hear!! Hear!! Avoid the master document at all costs. You are much
better off with a very long Word document even if those do get a little
squishy at times.

Do a Web search and you'll see that the experts say that there are only
two 
kinds of master documents in Word: those that are corrupt, and those
that 
are about to become corrupted. Absolutely stay away from the master
document 
"feature" in Word. It has never worked right.

The last time I tried master documents was with Word 2000. It couldn't
even 
handle straight text files (with an occasional italics) without bombing
out. 
And saving the master document file itself never worked. Every time I 
reopened it, it was empty and all the files had to be repopulated
manually.
