    Words Sporadic Span Tags?

    In Word, sometimes a sequence of words or even letters gets a Span tag inserted. While this isn't noticeable in Word itself, it becomes an annoyance when exporting to Flare, for example. The span tags are in Word's XML.

    How do they get entered, and how can I prevent that?

    It looks like they get added any time selections and formatting is applied or things like grammar/spell checking sets tags without any human intervention.

    Getting rid of them is more problematic though I appeared to have some simplification by selecting all and turning off the proofing or by saving the file with Wordpad.

    A google search shows you aren't the only person to wrestle with this problem and it appears that cleanup in Flare is easiest but you may need to do it topic by topic.
