A free, easy to use word processor with a wealth of features not seen in other packages. Despite being a fraction of the size of its heavy counterparts, TextShield supports all Word 2000 formatting features. It also include unique features such as Zip compression on all files wich schrinks files up to 95% of their original size. Similar to Windows Explorer, TextShield has two file management bars situated at the site of the screen for easier navigation of your documents. Insert Interactive Links, shodowed text with effects, convert to HTML, convert to rich text or plain text and back again... The list goes on and on. The latest version also includes an help file and a spell checker. TS2000 will run happily on Win2000 and ME, but an update from the website is needed to run TextShield on Win98/95. Word processing has never been so cheap and easy.
