    www.screenwriting.info

    Has to be the most informative website on the process ever. In my humble opinion.
    If I never meet you in this life, let me feel the lack; a glance from your eyes, and my life will be yours.

    BBC has an excellent set of FREE macros for Word which includes a toolbar and a windows help file.

    If you have Word 2000 or later, and want a free add-in that makes it easy to work in script format , it's definitely worth checking out.

    I'd like to also chime in on Cinergy Script Editor from www.mindstarprods.com . It isn't as full featured as Celtx- no spell check or reports, but the features it does have work- unlike Celtx's pagination bugs.
