How do I post documents? I have some stuff in Word (.doc) and in Acrobat (.pdf) that I'd like to post in response to some questions.

Please don't post word documents. Not everybody has, nor uses Microsoft products.

With this I agree completely, but be advised that there are options for viewing Microsoft Turd, Exsmell and PowerPlonk documents without supporting Bill Gates and his evil empire of craptacular software. OpenOffice, for instance, is a crossplatform-compatible, Java-based replacement for Microsoft Orifice that reads and writes MS documents with formatting intact.

Microsoft themselves publish a free viewer. The following one is for Word docs. I know there is one for visio and powerpoint files, probably one for excel files too.

Sorry to say, my home computers all run Linux. The PDF or even HTML is much better than a Word doc. OpenOffice, while a nice package is a real pig on my systems.
