In addition to Yetguelja: My favourite feature of HWP is the Hangeul Romaja 
input method (press ALT+F2), where the Korean characters are positioned 
like on the the standard Western keyboard (with a few exceptions like ng, 
eu etc.); yeo would be entered as y-i-e, yo is y-i-o, Hangeul is 
h-a-n-g-w-r. In case you have neither mastered the Korean standard 
(2-beolsik) input method nor own a Korean keyboard, this is really helpful. 
Korean Winword does not offer this option, so copy-and-paste; the same goes 
for email. I use HWP 96, and it works perfectly with Winword, Eudora and 
sometimes even Internet Explorer.
