Many thanks, Heather.
In earlier versions of Word (eg. Word for Office 97) on the odd occasion
that I have used it for text editing, I haven't found subsequent
issues. Maybe your version of Word is later, in which case that tip may
come in handy in other contexts (such as Windows .bat file
editing.) Always something to learn, eh?
