Corel WordPerfect is a) not free, b) ancient, and c) not well integrated
with modern widgets (uses Motif).

If you want WYSIWYG, go for OpenOffice.org.  If that's too big, there's
AbiWord (nice, but I always have offset problems when printing, and needs
a lot of gnomish libraries).

Otherwise LyX really does work well for a quick document, and is always
what I would recommend.  HTML is a last resort, but works well quickly if
you have a simple document.
