I recently republished my three-part series on Web 2.0 applications for lawyers (part 1, part 2, part 3), including several Web 2.0 word processing tools. Now comes one, Buzzword, that claims to be the first real word processor for the Web.

The difference between this and others such as Google Docs is in its features. It provides greater options for handling fonts, graphics, tables and page layouts. It also includes features you’d expect, such as importing of documents from multiple formats, versioning, ability to have multiple editors and ability to print to PDF.

Unfortunately, it is still in beta and registration is by invitation only. I’ve requested an invitation and will write more about it when I am able to try it out.
