i know it sucks i have to save as .doc but in school they only use windows....
1. Copy the content of your kword document as a temporary plain text file.
2. Install OpenOffice.
3. Run OpenOffice Writer, paste the original text, reformat as required.
4. Save as a .doc file.
Conclusion: Kword will not
reliably save a .doc file. OpenOffice will
reliably save a .doc file. Therefore, always use OpenOffice, and never use kword.
