I have some favorite features that I want to share.  No, it's not the ribbon bar although it is pretty cool.

The first is the addition of the Font Formatting menu to right click and select operation.  Insert some text into Word 2007 and click and drag it to highlight.  The closer you move the mouse to the top of the selection a Font Formatting tool will appear.  I absolutely think this is an awesome addition.  It also appears on right clicks in the current document.  I attached a screenshot below to demonstrate.

The next one is the new Smart Tags.  I love what they have done here.  Suppose you have a document that states a wind speed, say 50 MPH.  How fast is that in kilometers?  The smart tag knows.  Give it a shot, type in 50 MPH in Word, or an Outlook message for that matter and take a look at the smart tag that is formed.

NOTE: the placement of the smart tag dialog is a little screwy, it needs to be below the item taged and not above because it covers the text being linked.  I have 50 MPH in the screenshot twice in order for you to get the full effect.  The one being shown is actually under the smart tag dialog.
