Try the same demo with WordPerfect :-)
I have a copy of WP5.1+ for DOS (released in 1994). If I give it a document created with the latest WP13/WP2007/whatever it's called, IT WILL READ IT CORRECTLY!
WP6 was also released in 1994. It uses THE SAME fileformat as WP13, and is forward and backwards compatible. (And if it weren't for MS nasty tricks, WordPerfect probably wouldn't have changed the file format, and I'd be saying "WP5.0" instead of WP6 - which was released some time in the mid 80s!
