Hi, all,

I'm freelancing editing a doctoral paper with several scriptural
references. (It's going to stay in Word, so don't go there, please). I
don't want line breaks such as this:

In his letter to Timothy, the Apostle Paul writes in 1
Timothy 2:13.....

I want to keep "1" and "Timothy" together.

Is there a way to define a character style, or some approach, other than
resorting to a manual line break, to force characters to stay together?

My Frame-disciplined fingers want to type CTRL+Spacebar and make it all
better, but, of course, that won't help me in Word.
