More than 60 million people worldwide speak Korean, according to MSN Encarta. The word processing computer program Hangul caters to this market, providing native support for the Korean language and alphabet. You can share a native Hangul HWP file with someone who doesn't have Hangul installed by converting it into a Microsoft "Word 97-2003 Document" file. Hangul '97 and newer can save HWP files as .doc files.
