Hi there. Sorry to post a technical Word question, but our tech
editor is pulling her hair out on this one, and I'm stumped as well.

We want to se up Word's Auto Correct to automatically remove manual
hyphens and replace them with non-breaking hyphens. For some reason
this won't work. We can find and replace for it by using the ^~, but
Auto Correct takes this special character code too seriously (you
should try it for kicks).

Does anyone know how to do this?



please reply off-list; I get the digest.

It's a mighty poor mind that can only think of one way to spell
a word.
