If your subscription was successful, you should have gotten a general
info response from the listserv daemon. I'll forward one to you.

Someone else who knows more about it can tell you. I think you can
import Xy files straight into Word and then convert from within W
before you send; but I think the going method is to use a Xy filter to
convert the file to RTF before importing it to Word.

Fortunately I haven't been asked to submit in Word format. Seems kind
of silly, doesn't it?
