Default formatting marks, extra space in cell

Hi;

In the file http://www.windwardreports.com/temp/DocFormatting.zip Can
you please tell me the following:

1) With show all formatting marks some end of cell & end of para marks
on page 2 are in red. What does the red mean?

2) On page 3 several rows leave blank space in the bottom of the cells
- but the cell height is not specified. Why is that added spacing in
there?

3) A paragraph marker at the end of a paragraph does not appear to
force a blank line if outside fo a cell - but does force it inside a
cell. Is that correct?

thanks - dave

Default formatting marks, extra space in cell

To answer (3) first, a paragraph mark in a cell represents an *extra*
paragraph because the original cell paragraph ends in the end-of-cell
marker. The paragraph that ends in the EOC marker, if empty, would be a
"blank line." As for (2), it could be that the text in those cells has some
Spacing After applied. As for (1), without looking at the document, I
couldn't be sure, but do the red ones disappear when you hide nonprinting
characters? Sometimes users will format paragraph marks as both Hidden (to
join paragraphs in different styles) and red (so that their special status
is obvious).

Default formatting marks, extra space in cell

Hi;

Thank you for your suggestions.

1) Not hidden chars - that was my first thought too. I've saved it as
a WordML file and I can't find anything in the xml of the file that is
different between the regular and red ones.

2) I went back and looked after your suggestion - it's the line
spacing set for the paragraph - that adds to the spacing of the empty
paragraph at the end. THANK YOU.

3) That makes sense - THANK YOU.

Anyone have a suggestion on question (1)?????

thanks - dave

The some of the text at one time was red, and somehow when it was changed to
black (or blue), these paragraph , end of cell, and end of row marks got
missed.
