I do contract work for an organization that edits in Word 5.1 and then
imports to Frame. We have to strip out all the special characters (quite a
few) and certain formatting (e.g., bold, italics, tabs) with macros that
replace these features with the Frame codes. Otherwise, conversion of the
imported documents from Word usually fails.
