What you're showing is part of a Rich Text Format (RTF) file. Usually when you
ask Word to open an RTF file, it automatically converts it to Word format. It
can't do that if the beginning of the document is damaged, or if the RTF
converter program isn't correctly installed.

This piece of the document is only a description of what fonts were installed on
the system when the document was saved. The text will be elsewhere in the file,
probably much closer to the end. Unfortunately, unless the document was almost
completely unformatted text, there will be many formatting codes scattered
through it that will make it difficult to piece together.

In the hope that the problem is in the converter and not in the document, try
going to the Help menu and choosing "Detect and Repair". Then go to Tools
Options General and check the box for "Confirm conversions at open", and then
try again to open the document. If you see the Conversions dialog, choose RTF.
