Hi Nigel,

did you check out kword of the koffice project.  It should be able what y=
looking for, but it may be the clip art themes stuff.  However it integra=
great with the other koffice applications.  If you are able to provide th=
clip art themes I guess you're settled.  You may want to drop an email at=
koffice@kde.org emaillist.
