How many times we were confronted with a situation of recieving a word processing document like a StarWriter or Microsoft Word document while we were travelling in an alien country with a classic old laptop which does not have a viewer with it.
I came across good amount of solutions to cope with this problem. Check out the following and I am sure you would be loving the most attractive one to solve yours too:
- Convert the document to a preferred format using webservices like Media-Convert.
- Google Docs and Spreadsheets
Regarding the point number (1) discussed above, we have also touched the same in our other post and as discussed those webservices enlisted in the other post help us to convert between a wide variety of file formats.
