That's news to me, Peter. From my own experience, LibreOffice's Writer
is much better here, while Word still tends to mess up everything at
random situations. This is especially true for long texts. For the
everage secretary's letter of, say, three pages, Word is good. But it is
still definitely deprecated to be used for students' works, and there is
good reason for it. So I wouldn't dare to emphasize it for a phonebook.
I would even consider Writer the better tool for this task if you invent
a decent set of paragraph styles for it. Scribus might fail in case of
long texts due to its long operating times for longer concatenated text
