alrite i got it working.
I tried opening it with microsoft works but i dunno, it was all messed up. The encoding was different. But then i remembered i used to have Microsoft Works 2002 and now i have Office XP Pro, so i installed Works, still no luck. Then when i opened the document, it installed a converter and still no luck...
5 mins later, i return to the computer, ready to start fixing up the first page when something tellls me to try to open the 2nd page again, so i did. and VIOLA! It worked
Phew, i dont know if i saved time or lost more just getting it to open. lol
