I'm not disagreeing with your thoughts on not wanting to convert the 
Word Hyperlink style. However, since this is the way DBT 10.4 handled 
hyperlinks, it is how I resolved it several years ago. DBT users I come 
in contact with are not using active links within Word and therefore 
don't care if the underlining is there to distinguish it. Consequently, 
I never felt it was a major issue to modify the Word style to get rid of 
the underlining.

George/Ian ... as one alternative, is it possible to have Swift deal 
with this issue for those who don't want to modify the Hyperlink style?

Susan, I understand what you are saying in response to my previous post
however, I do not believe that we should need to be altering the Word
hyperlink style.

Surely, DBT can be programmed to ignore the underlining of hyperlink 
text when the text is within DBT set in the compinline codes.  By doing 
as you suggest and changing the hyperlink style within the Word template 
would affect the visual look of all word documents and to my mind, this 
would be completely unsatisfactory.

I hope this makes sense to programmers like Peter and Jo.  I will be
interested to hear your responses.

Kind regards
