There are 17,969 files in the i-d directory whose names end with .txt, of which 397 have the Word string.  Wow, that's 2%.  It's still way down in the noise, not worth any special effort 

The number that use UTF8 is zero. So no support needed for that eirher.  

More people might use word if they knew about it.  You found our there was a new version just today.
