Default line spacing issue with Asian docs

I am working in Word 2002 and received some Word 97 documents from Japan.
These documents all appeared to be have line spacing greater than single
spacing, and I thought this might be because of Asian typography rules.

I copied and pasted those documents into new files based on my Normal
template. This fixed the line spacing issue for all of the documents except
from one.

There is obviously something different about this one document, and I am
unable to fix it so that the line spacing looks like it is set at single.
When I look at the properties of the style Normal, Word tells me that the
whole document is set in single spacing, and that the language has been set
at English (US), but it sure doesn't look that way.

Can anyone help???

Hi Brad -

I had a similar problem and Jay and Suzanne gave me some good advice today.
Check the posts for 4/10/2005 on "Line spacing - too much lead."

If you've come up with any good fixes in the meantime, I'd be interested in
hearing about them.

Although it seems that Asian typography is really the problem in both these
cases, another thing to be aware of is the spacing you can get when vertical
alignment is set to "Justified," that is, very wide line spacing that
decreases as you add lines to the page (unless you insert a page break or a
paragraph that jumps to the next page because it's formatted as "Keep with
next" or the like).

Solution for Word 2003 (U.S. version):

File Page Setup "Document Grid" tab Grid Select "No Grid"

That totally solved the problem for me. Hope that helps everyone! I figured it out with hints from these two links:
