Default MSWord and Wordperfect typesetting

I normally publish in Quark, but I have a project coming up that contains hundreds of footnotes, so I will need the automatic footnoting capacity of a word processor program--but I hate to give up the superior typesetting quality offered by Quark. For various reasons, TeX is not an option.

My experience with Word and Wordperfect is about 15 years out of date, but I recall that Wordperfect once did a significantly better typesetting job than MSWord. What is the case today? I would appreciate hearing from people who have worked with the current versions of these programs--how good a job of typesetting can I expect from either MSWord or Wordperfect in their current versions?

Many thanks,
