    Get iText Pro '08

    You will not regret it!

    It is fast, smooth and capable.

    And the manual is in Japanese! :)

    Not that you'll need it, honestly it is just terrific, the best word processor for Mac out there. It doesn't have everything, just 95% of what you want without all the crud you don't.
