Office 2007 issues with WebCT

Students are arriving with new computers and the new Office 2007 suite of applications. Some schools have already adopted the new software and teaching it begins this summer or fall. While getting prepared for an advanced office class this summer, I have run into more than one problem in WebCT--it does not recognize the X file formats!

The following White Paper describes each issue and suggests one or more work-arounds. From what I can see on the WebCT site, nothing is planned to correct the problem at this point. It affects versions CE 4.1 and CE 6 that I know of.
