Zero Width Space by
I've heard there is such a creature -- lets you use a slash, but lets the work break at the right margin. So typing "petitioner/respondent" can do a line break thusly: * * * petitioner/ respondent * * * In Word 2000, how do I get a zero-width space? *(((({

I made a letterhead template. I opened "Properties" and cleaned out everything. But One property won't go away -- CONTENTS. It has a phrase in it. Each time I save a document from this template, it tries to save under the first few words of the phrase in CONTENTS. How do I kill that...

Can't get Options to Stick by
I'm using Word XP. I like to set the Options to turn off most of the bells and whistles. My options aren't sticking. They used to stick. I recall that Acrobat once interfered with Word 2000 in that fashion. Acrobat doesn't seem to be the culprit here -- Word & Acrobat have been playing...

Fussy legal citation problem by
Has anybody figured out how to do legal citation in an easier way? I'm referring specifically to the comma following a case name -- it should not be underlined or italicized.

Determine if the total # of pages is ODD or EVEN by
Is it possible to use field codes to determine if the document has an odd or even number of pages? I have a couple of long-winded reasons for asking - but this is essentially what I need to know, if anyone has any thoughts. I just can't figure it out. Thanks.

Forms & Tables Help Needed by
Hi Margaret, Good answers. In making a "form template" I don't want to set the size or position of the tables. Perhaps I wasn't clear about what I'm hoping to accomplish. I want the default for tables to be: no borders float font size and placement
