    Word Character Marks (Word 2000 >)

    Hi,

    What is the difference between the Paragraph Mark and the Paragraph Character in the Find/Replace Dialog. Also, what is the Caret Character, and when will you use this? I cannot find any help about this character!!

    The Paragraph character is the backwards P character that is visible when you set your options to display the returns in your document. The paragraph marks are not visible in your prints but the Paragraph character is.

    The Caret character is what you get when you type Shift-6 and it looks like an upside down v.

    The paragraph mark signifies the end of a paragraph. You get it by pressing the Enter key. If the Show / Hide

    This only works in Word 2002 and higher. You can type a hexadecimal code and press Alt+X to insert a Unicode character. Conversely, if there is no hexadecimal code immediately before the insertion point, Alt+X will turn the character to the left of the insertion point into a hexadecimal code.

    If you select Insert | Symbol..., and select (normal text) as font, you can see the code for the selected character.

    Lists of hexadecimal codes can be found for example in Character Names Index and Code Charts - Scripts.
