Office97 and XP

Could you advise are these two compatible in real life? I have been offered Office 97 for sale and I am tempted but as I am running XP I am unsure as to how it will work. I know there is a compatability wizard but never having usedr it I need some advice as to how reliable it is likely to be.

Also can you confirm that this product is compatible with all other office suites up to the latest versions?

I use Office 97 with XP very happily and as far as I can see there have been no problems in about a year's worth of fairly constant use!

I think 97 will run on most if not all Microsoft O/S. Certainly runs on 98, 98se,Me and XP.
