Wierd behavior to be sure, never have encountered this one before. Interesting Lissy, Stay warm we are go get the snow um, ahem, tomorrow, I think. Though I don't think it is not coming. But would like to be proven wrong smile, as well, even if it would bug me to no end to have one I wouldn't mind an "in the office day". here at home. Snuggled up with good books, my huge and truly favorite pink sweater and sweats with my faithful and rather beautiful pup at my feet and lots of hot chocolate. Let it snow, not in your document but in the Boston area, come on dump it. My poor dog hasn't had snow to play in now for six weeks. Smile. Shelley L. Rhodes B.S.

Another book I'm validating has enormous expanses of blank masses between pages. If I highlight one of them, my entire computer screen turns black. It takes several page downs to get through these to the top of the following page, but only by having my cursor on the first letter of text on that next page and pressing backspace can I eliminate those gaps. Surprisingly, though it takes up to 25 page downs to reach the next page, it only takes about 2 to 4 control backspaces to eliminate them, and then I have to make sure the page number at the bott;om wasn't lost and insert the page break which disappears in the deleting process. I'm a fourth of the way through the book and am enjoying reading it, so I'm going to to correct its problems instead of abandoning it. I've tried the global replace with the three carrot w's and the three carrot t's as Gerald and Jamie suggested. and which worked in similar situations, but in this book, microsoft word tells me none of those characters are in the document. I'm using microsoft word, 2003, jaws, in an RTF file. Unless someone has a better idea, I'll need virtual snowshoes to navigate through this book. Thanks in advance, Always with love, Lissi To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx put the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
