bizaar formatting in WORD
Every now and again,, when I attempt opening a document that I produced in WORD (usually ariel 12 pt), the document opens in what appears to be Greek (or some other foreign language)--long ago I knew a work-around involving a system to open the document in the format in which it was created--can anyone out there help?--thank you in advance

Is this from using File>Open inside Word itself or by double-clicking the file in Windows Explorer?
From inside Word, you might have chosen the wrong 'open format' such as 'Recover Text from any File'. Check your options near the Open button if that is the case.Andrew Lockton, Chrysalis Design, Melbourne Australia
