But...but...why scan? Why not just copy the 5.1 files onto floppies,
drag the files to your Windows Desktop, and rename the files with a .doc
extension? This will convert them to Word...I've done it lots of times.

Provided WP5.1 refers to WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS or an early version of
Windows there is no need to resort to scanning hard copies. Word has
facilities to open WordPerfect files (it allows Bill's company to absorb
WordPerfect users) including WordPerfect 5.1.  Save the files onto disk
and do file, open in your new machine.  There is an option to just
display 'Files of Type: WordPerfect 5.x'
