: Here is a puzzler about a weird character being placed in a Word document after using the FIND option. It can really mess up your document if you don't catch it and delete it.
: Using the XP version of Word, if I copy words from one Word document and go to another Word document and paste them into the FIND box, Word drops a weird character (shaped like a tiny box) at the current cursor position.
: -- I pasted in the weird character below this line ---
: ---> <---
More info. If I copy the word "the" from an email message into the Word Find box, the weird character instantly gets inserted at the cursor position (before I even do the FIND process). Is this some kind of major bug in the Word program that nobody else seems to have discovered?
