I doubt IE's issues are any worse than Office's issues.


They might not be any worse; but they are AFAIK much more readily exploited. You here about IE exploits all the time; when's the last time you heard about a virus that spread by exploiting outlook's renderer.

Using Word instead of IE is because composing emails in Word is a better experience than composing them in IE.


I suspect the fact that Doc/Docx and WordHtml map to each other roughly 1:1 is also a factor; if they added an html5 mode that supported all the new and shiney they'd need to figure out how to convert each and every one of those features into a word representation so your formatting survived mostly intact when you toggle the html/richtext modes. Word in the browser might get us there eventually. Assuming they don't keep it crippled to protect desktop office sales anyway.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
