If you downloaded and installed the InDesign 2.0.2 update available December 4-5, 2002, and you have not encountered any of the installer issues noted below, then you do not need to install this revised update.

Text formatting is discarded when placing Microsoft Excel, Word, and RTF documents if the "Retain Format" option is deselected in the Place dialog box.
InDesign no longer interrupts while drawing objects onscreen when the space bar shortcut is used to navigate in a document.
When generating Adobe PostScript from InDesign (by exporting pages as EPS files, printing to a PostScript printer, or saving as a PostScript file), if the document contains text that interacts with transparency, the size of the resultant PostScript file will be reduced.
