cut-and-paste from the NoteTab Help file...
My Word processor file looks funny in NoteTab and some text is lost!
Files produced by word processors are usually not saved as plain text
files. They contain all sorts of control codes that only the word processor
that created them (or compatible programs) can understand. Word processors
use those special control characters to store text formatting information
(bold, italic, line spacing, paragraph alignment, etc.).
The NoteTab editor only understands plain text files (that's why it is so
fast compared to a word processor) and will display the special control
characters as funny symbols or rectangles on the screen. Some of the
control characters may be interpreted by NoteTab as signaling the end of a
file. This explains why such files are rarely fully loaded in the editor.
Unless you really know what you are doing, you should not edit or save such
files with NoteTab. Doing this may render them unreadable to your word
