Microsoft Office 98 Macintosh Edition Ships

Get the most out of your Macintosh with Microsoft Office 98 Macintosh Edition-intelligent applications tightly integrated with the Mac OS that help you accomplish more with far less effort.

Work the way you want with Microsoft Office 98 Macintosh Edition, which brings together the world's best-selling business productivity applications in an environment tightly integrated with the Mac OS. Everything about it is designed to help you get better results with less effort, to communicate and collaborate easily, and to get the most out of your Mac.

Office 98 supports the platinum appearance defined by Apple and seen in Mac OS 8. In addition, extended support for Apple technologies makes it easier than ever to maximize all the resources of your Power Macintosh®.

Office 98 helps all users get great results faster and with less effort using innovative, time-saving features such as the Office Assistant, which can walk you through virtually any task in every application. The Microsoft Word Table Drawing Tool helps you effortlessly create tables the way you want them to look. The intuitive Spell It and Grammar Check features save you time by proofreading your spelling and use of grammar as you type so you can correct common mistakes on the fly. Common menus, toolbars, and commands across all Office applications mean that once you've learned the features in one application it's a snap to use other Office applications.

With Office 98 you don't have to work alone. Powerful communication and collaboration features enable you to share work with others across platforms (ex. same file format as Office97, Windows), across the office, and even over the Internet. Revolutionary new Web technology in Office 98 helps you quickly and easily author exciting multimedia pages directly from your Office 98 applications without having to learn HTML. Add hyperlinks to other Office documents for easy navigation from document to document-or to Web pages-on your hard disk, company intranet, or the Internet. Easily communicate, collaborate, and share Office documents with others-even Windows users-by using Microsoft Outlook Express. And take advantage of advanced workgroup features such as Document Versioning, Track Changes, and In-Place Comments in Word, and Shared Workbooks in Excel.

Office 98 Macintosh Edition is the suite that helps you get the most out of your Macintosh and create results as brilliant as your ideas. For more information, visit: http://www.microsoft.com/macoffice/.
