digital certificates in Word Office 2008 for Mac

Dear Sir:

My question is about digital certificates in Office 2008 for Mac.

Is possible sign a Office for Mac document whit a digital certificate ?

Digitally signing a document has many benefits. A digital signature on a
file is an electronic, cryptographic-based, secure stamp of authentication.
When you add a digital signature to a document, you are supplying a
verifiable signature that can vouch for the authenticity and integrity of the
file. The certificate used to create this signature identifies the signer.
Readers of your document can be assured of the document creator's identity
and that the document has not been altered since it was created.

This is very, very important. See this link:

How to digitally sign a Office for Mac document whit my Citizen’s Card ?

The digitally signing is very, very important. The countries in Europe go to
the Personal Identity Card.

I don't believe you can unfortunately.
I really really hope they'll add that in a future version of Word,

Hi,

We won't know until the future happens. But you can influence the future
a little bit by sending feedback to Microsoft stating that you are
interested in having digital signature support for Mac Office.

In whichever application it is important to you to have digitally signed
code, please use the Help menu to send feedback to Microsoft.

This particular forum is maintained by Microsoft, but Microsoft
employees rarely read it because it is for peer-to-peer support (mostly
just us customers).
