How can I print old 'Word for DOS' files?

Episode 1413 (2:00:09)

Mike from Los Angeles, CA
Wordperfect 5.1 DOS

Mike used to use Word for DOS for writing screenplays, using stylesheets to handle formatting. Now he's trying to print his old files and he can't, even though he's loading it into Word for DOS. What can he do? Leo says that printing to DOS is fairly ancient. He can copy to LPT1 and print it, but it won't get him the results he wants. He may be able to import them into modern word. The Chatroom says he could try Microsoft Works as an intermediary, if he can find it.

Mike should try this from justsolve.archiveteam.org. It's complicated, but it will allow him to open Word for DOS files into modern Word apps with the stylesheet.
