Good Lightweght Typing Program

I am lookin for a lightweight typing program for my wallstreet with OS 10.2. I would really like something that can do all the formattign stuff that word can do, minus all the other stuff that word can do. Can text edit do that? I have looked at appleworks and I still have my OS9 version, can I upgrade to appleworks for OSX for free? If so, how can I do that?
Also, will appleworks OSX bog down the 233MHz processor badly?

Appleworks works fine on OSX and as long as you have version 6 you can upgarde it for free to work on OSX search the apple support site for the update.

I think TextEdit can do what you need. If it doesn't break the formatting of Word documents, then its likely it can apply similar formatting to new docs. I like it, use it for 90% of my word processing, but sometimes its hard to find how to do the formating you want. If it is lacking in anything, its good documentation.

And TextEdit does RTF, which

And TextEdit does RTF, which many places want for cross platform files without dealing with various Word version bungles.
