I am having a problem in opening a large file that gets stuck on the Typesetting Test... . The progress bar reaches 90%+ then stays.
The document is over 100 pages and has multiple formats due to its function as a storage of many calculations, equations, and illustrations.

what hardware/software specifications? Would be helpful to have more info!
What amount of RAM are you running - you never have enough RAM installed...

Then I would think you're up against the slow-downs that result from running 10.5.2 on a PPC computer that doesn't support the necessary graphic acceleration in the graphics card, so it's handing it over to the CPU, and on only 1 GB RAM you might well be ending up with a lot of swapping out to disk.
It's probably just taking a loooonnnggg time thinking and drawing out the text pages.

So, if you have a double processor G5 equipped with 1 GB RAM, and running Leopard, you can hope to type as fast as my old LC with 12 MB RAM and system 7.
So much for technological progress!

The question might well come down to what graphics card you have to cope with OS X.5.x's new demands.
There are a lot of muscle cards around on eBay at the moment for pretty reasonable money.
