The joke is that LFN as developed and used in MS Win9x and so on, was already 
a part of WordPerfect 5.1 - and WordPerfect is the favourite word processor 
of Legal Offices.  And WordPerfect 5.1 was in public use at least five years 
before Microsoft brought out their (in)famous MS Win95 - "You make a grown 
man cry!"

If the worst comes to the worst, there's plenty of room on this jugular to go
