Would it be possible to know if an Android tablet would support Microsoft Bookshelf 98 or Bookshelf 2000? I’m looking for something to use as a comprehensive Dictonary/Thesaurus/ Encylopedia set.
Frank, Microsoft Bookshelf isn’t going be compatible with an Android tablet, Windows and Android are two completely different operating systems. Fortunately, you’ll find a whole lot of options for reference apps over in the Google Play Store. 
When you think about it, the Microsoft Bookshelf was an early version of an app as we know them today. You can also find eBook versions of these items, but the apps are interactive and usually searchable.
