Will MS Publisher 97 work with XP?

  Rockarch 18:33 09 Feb 2008

This is probably a very easy question for someone who knows!
I am going to be editing a newsletter for a local group & looking through the software I've got I discovered MS Publisher 97 on an Office 97 disc I've got. The simple question is whether this will work on a PC running XP Home?

If it won't does anyone know of an easy to use & inexpensive (ideally free) publishing programme for a fairly straightforward newsletter? Word features are not enough due to the way it is printed.
Thanks in advance for your help

IIRC, later editions of Publisher are not backwards compatible.
