If you're thinking of using Works b/c you don't want to pay for Word/ MS Office, just get Open Office from openoffice.org. It's basically identical to all of the MS programs, and it's free. Just a word of caution
though... you'll have to change the default file format to save it in an Office compatible format. Otherwise, the whole suite of programs works great!
Edit: if you want something even better, use Google Docs. It's also free and it's automatically saved on Google so you can access it anywhere.
