Default I can't see anything but codes or field codes...help!!!!

For example, whenever I type a web address such as "www.yahoo.com" it
automatically is changed to "{HYPERLINK "http://www.yahoo.com"}". How do I
turn this off??? I know that if I highlight it and hit shift F9 it changes
it to normal text...but how do I make it always be normal and avoid having to
always highlight and hit F9? It is the same with templates that I download
to use...most of the stuff I cannot even see, but I know it is all there
because it shows up in Print Preview. Please help me as this is giving me an
incredible headache! THANKS!

Look under Tools, Options, Edit. There might be a tick in the "Field Codes"
box. Untick it. If it keeps coming up then this might be set in your
normal.dot. Therefore you will have to open the normal.dot, turn it off and
save the normal.dot again.
