and some text, should be 1.3Mbytes in size. I thought perhaps one of the
pix had not been reduced in size before embedding in the Word doc. I
decided to reproduce the letter (I also though that perhaps the letter,
which my wife has edited stuff into and out of for the last ten years,
was suffering from a bit of garbage non-collection a la Page maker), and
1) Made a new blank doc, and copy/pasted just the text from the existing
doc. Saved. So far so good, its only 32k.
2) Trimmed the picture and saved at lower res - good, that's only 88k.
3) Did insert picture into the so-far text-only doc and saved. Agggh,
suddenly its 1.3Mbytes.
Another problem I had - I inserted an item of clip-art, and managed to
send it behind the text. Thereafter, I was unable to select the clipart
item at all. Any attempt to click or right-click it brought up the
insert-picture dialogue. In the end, I decided to see what happened if I
did the insert picture. The clip-art vanished and whatever picture I
chose took its place.
Any comments on either of these effects would be appreciated.

The reason Word bloats the file is because it converts the image to a
different format, I'm guessing something like bmp, I wouldn't be surprised
if it also scaled it up. It has nothing to do with the size of the original
picture. What can I say, it's a piece of crap...
Indeed you did, but these things happen. :)
