    Can the strikethrough character be changed?

    If I set the Word 97 font characteristics to "Strikethrough" any text then typed gets hyphens, ---, drawn through the middle of letters. If I want to strike through just a single "e", for example, the result isn't particularly obvious, and I would prefer to strike though each character with a forward slash, ///.

    Can anyone tell me how to do this?

    And as a supplementary, is it possible to make the strikethrough characters a different colour from the text which they overlay?

    <font face="Script MT Bold"><font color=blue><big><big>John</big></big></font color=blue></font face=script>

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...

    Go to Tools, Options and select Track Changes. Under deleted text, there are only a few other options availabel for symbols but you can also change the color. Don't know how to get more options for symbols though.[img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img]
