    Character or Symbol (Word2000)

    In converting documents from outside sources, or documents created with font sets other than the current configuration, I'm having a problem with conversion of symbols like the degree symbol, the cent symbol, etc.

    Is there someway to run through the collection of characters in a document and single out a 'character' that is actually an inserted symbol?

    For example, I was playing around with the wdCharacterCase, assuming that a symbol could not be wdUpperCase or wdLowerCase, but maybe there is a much easier way.
