Default --A Find & Replace Question--

Hey guys,
I am constantly editing rtf & html ebooks with word. Every document for
some odd reason has a couple of areas where there is an extra space in
between paragraphs, here's an example:

Hlkjlkjk.......................................... .........................
.................................................. ..........................
.................................................. ..........................
......................klklkl.


Koipopio.......................................... .........................
.................................................. ..........................
.................................................. ..........................
......................ppopop.

In the example above there are two spaces between the 2 paragraphs when
their should only be one. This happens about 2 to 3 times per document & is
a little time consuming to search the document for each one.

I figured out how to fix this by using the Find & Replace tools. I would
open up Find, then click on the More button. Then I open up special &
choose 1st paragraph mark (^p) & 2nd white space (^w). It looks like this
in the find box: ^p^w

This has been working perfectly, but all of a sudden it can't find any of
them, even when I know for sure that their are 2 to 3 in the document.
Does anyone know whats up with this? Any help would be appreciated, not to
mention save me alot of time.

Thanx,
