I have used this software daily to clean text since it first came out. It only improves while staying extremely simple to use. Not all the on-the-surface choices - set up the preference and just use it. Usually, I am cleaning web site text to paste in a document of some sort or cleaning an email. I am still with Eudora(6.24), and SmartWap 2.8 still has a supporting plugin. I have tried to use Clean Text, but it is just not as easy, nor has there been repeated upgrade cost. Just think about it, stripping a selection of Word-doc text of all that formating and using that text in a rich text document or for building a web page -- clean and easy. That is my experience.
