Pword's web page design has just been started. The goal of the webpage is make pWord look and feel attractive to first time viewers. Right now, pWord has no web page to speak of. A web page will make more people see pWord for the first time as a viable project.

And the encryption mechanism will be enabled through the context menu. Currently in pWord 0.0.5a and below there is no encryption capability.

pWord is now in the process of recruiting beta testers. Skills needed are in each of the windows environment. .net 1.1 will be required to test this software. I've tried the software on Windows 2000, and Windows XP so far. I would like to try the software on as many servers as possible.
