WinXP Home comes with...WinXP Home... That's it...period.

MS Office is a separate program that you have to pay for. If you purchase a new computer (direct thru a mfgr), you can specify it to include whatever that mfgr makes available.

Thru a retailer, they may include office, but more oft than not, it will be MS Works.

As far as converting Excel files to Frontpage, remember that Excel is a spreadsheet program, and Frontpage is a web design program. You can import a spreadsheet into a web page, or save a spreadsheet as a web page.

BULL HOCKEY!
MS Office includes Word, Excel, Powerpoint. Wordperfect is manufactured by Corel (totally different company). FWIW, WinXP (Home or Pro) does NOT include Wordperfect either. The computer manufacturer you got your computer from may have included it, but it is NOT part (i.e. integrated with) WinXP. It's a totally separate application.

Is it me, or is the IQ of this forum slipping?

Note really. Considering I help monitor the forums for free, and try to help out with the best possible info whenever possible. Chances are that was one of the days when we had someone spamming the forums and I was a bit cranky.
