Default Word 2000 - Justify Issue

I have a very long document (250 pages) where all content is subject to our own
styles.

The main style uses Word (only) justification, together with hyphenation limited
to 2 instances per para with a 1.3cm zone. There is a first line indent of 1cm
with this style.

Most of the text looks great but I have a very strange issue that seems to occur
every 30 or so pages and it concerns the LEFT margin (not the right margin oddly
enough).

In the final para of the aforementioned pages the left margin starts to lean in
by a point or two - and it looks very strange indeed.

I can find nothing wrong with either the style, nor the line spacing (I am using
Georgia 11pt TT Font and line spacing of at least 15pt) - and there are no
additional hidden spaces or characters that I can see. I am not using Kerning
and have only Widows and Orphans control turned on.

Can anyone possibly point me in a direction to try and resolve this strange issue?

I am pretty sure its a problem with Word's justification - but I have tried
turning on/off the "Full justify like Wordperfect" option and that makes no
difference to this issue. Nearly all other "compatibility" options are turned
off as well as I usually keep long documents as simple as possible.

I am baffled at the moment!

Thank in advance,





Steven

N.B I am using Word 2000 with SP3 + all patches installed on an XP Pro SP2 system.

This must have been font corruption or something similar. I made a new document
and copied the original text in using rich text format - and it now looks fine.
Interestingly enough the new file is 30K smaller than the original - so I guess
there were issues with the original document.
