EM-Dashes in Wurd

While we're on the subject of M$ quirks ... why can I type "em-dashes" using ALT+0151 in the copy of Wurd I use at work -- but I cannot do this on my personal copy at home? Which program setting and/or Windows configuration governs this? (Both using XP and Word2000).

how can I include declinations in an Excel spreadsheet?

How do I format cells in EXCEL to accept numeric values in the form: -26:32 (or +26:32 ... that is, mm.ss but including the pos/neg sign)? I'm trying to compile a simply list of Messier Objects (astronomy) and can't figure out how to include declinations.

Which freely available utilities, gizmos and doodads ALWAYS have a place on your Windows machine?

WinDoze: You're setting up your new machine. Which freely available utilities, gizmos and doodads ALWAYS have a place on your computer? WinAmp? WinZip? WinRAR? Acrobat Reader? ICQ (or variants)? For me, on a WinDoze system I can't live without IrfanView or DCEnhance.
