Is a password-protected LibreOffice document compatible with MS Office 2003, and how effective is the protection?

An alternative would be to zip it, but am looking for the simplest solution.

Hopefully this will answer your question. It appears they use encryption, compared to Microsoft's plain password protection. However that thread is about 2 years old, so I don't know how relevant it is now.

Am I a spook? I cannot tell you.

But, lacking ESP, a link would certainly help my cause

Yes, that would help wouldn't it?! Edited my post now.

Pretty rushed this morning, glad I kept the link open!
