In response to your first question:
No, this is not a problem with many rich strings in Excel 2003. 

See the two attached Excel documents which contain the same visual information
(a 10x10 cell matrix with superscripts on each cell value). The one named
test_poi_export.xls was generated using the attached test program. When one
highlights all the cells, changes their text color, then presses Save in Excel
2003, Excel 2003 will crash. When one follows the same steps with the second
attached Excel workbook (from_excel.xls), the text color changes correctly and
pressing the Save button in Excel 2003 does not crash the application.

I attempted to open these files in BiffViewer, but whereas the one created by
POI opens fine, the second file ("from_excel.xls", created manually in Excel
2003), crashes the BiffViewer application with a general protection fault. I
don't care that the one created in Excel 2003 crashes BiffViewer, what we need
is for POI to generate a file that does not crash Excel 2003.
