Simple to solve, just cut and paste the entire document out of word and into a new word document. Then save.

This is such an old feature of word, quite a few companys have got in trouble when journalists reappear all the hidden changes in the documents. Rude things said about comeptitors. hidden meo's information removed from roadmaps or press releases.

Alternatively don't use microsoft word.

I prefer Final Writer ...

(mutters to himself, walking off)

... but seriously, Open Office is good. The Calc program is
excellent. But you'll have to have some beef under the hood.
It's terribly slow to load on my 450MHz Linux box.

I find a bit alarming that they recommend Microsoft to help you. It was Microsoft who made Word in the first place. Hmmmmmm...
