What it should look like

Only about 50 % of publications I try show any text or graphic at all. These are mainly posters with WordArt being used in them from MSPUB 2002/2003. I will include a screenshot of what the Microsoft Publisher version should look like. The screenshot labeled mspubPUB.png is opened in Publisher 2010.

As I've been able to confirm this problem I am marking as:

New (confirmed)
Critical - seems like a pretty basic .pub file, if we're going to say we support it, it should work :) 
High

I fear that WordArt is not supported as of now

Brennan: any chance you might have time to look at this?

Thanks to cjae for reporting and Joel for confirming.

There is currently no support for WordArt in libmspub, though I agree it'd be nice to have if someone ever gets around to working on it :)

I'm marking this as a feature request, as opposed to a critically severe bug.
