Subject:I really need some help or advice. From:TIEJUN YANG <yang_tiejun -at- HOTMAIL -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 13 Nov 1998 10:13:32 PST
Please forgive me -- I think I've posted similar question before, but
I can't find the answer and it's really bugging me....
I'm a graduate student in Computer Science Department, Utah State
University. I am working on a project -- automatic grading system, which
is to find the format differences in two word files, like different font
type, font size and so on.
I think there are some "control characters" to control these
formats.These characters are all unprintable characters and I need to
know what are their exact meaning or what they control.
Would you please tell me who could help me on this subject or where I
could find some information about these "control characters"?
Expecting your reply. Your help will be greatly appreciated!
