      I want to take an old MSWord file, open it in vimppc, and zap all
      control characters, leaving me alpha-num-punctuation; here's what I
      thought should work:

      :%s/[[:cntrl:]]//g

      This nets me a warning, "Pattern not found: [[:cntrl:]]"

      All help appreciated, backchannel is just fine. Thanks!!
