TextMaker for Linux based Sharp Zaurus
In an ideal world, you could create a Microsoft Word document on your desktop computer, put it on your Sharp Zaurus, edit and format it on the road, and then send it back to the office as a .DOC file, with content and all formatting still intact.
This is what Zaurus users expect from their mobile computers.

Unfortunately, this is not how it works right now. MobileWord, the word processor shipping with all Zaurus PDA, is somewhat limited: No headers or footers. No tables. No outliner. No on-the-fly spell-checking. Severely limited text formatting. Image support? Barely existent.

What about document conversion then? As soon as you move a Microsoft Word file to your Zaurus, all features that Hancom Mobile Word cannot process are stripped and thrown away. Basically, just the text in bold, italic, and underline survives, but not much else.

TextMaker for Zaurus is the first complete word processor for Zaurus. The program supports multi-language spell-checker, graphics, footnotes, tables. It also includes a sophisticated character and paragraph formatting with lossless conversion of Microsoft Word .DOC files.
