downloaded the droplets, so, yes, I do have the latest droplets and by
that method was eventually able to open the file in WP.
I also mentioned, when the file is open in WP the numbers restart from 1
after some apparently normal (unnumbered) paragraphs, even though there
are other unnumbered paragraphs in between a long set of numbered lines
of text. I don't see a pattern as to why this numbering restarts from 1

automatic to fixed, or point me to a resource on how to do that? I am
ignorant of WP Macros Maybe I could even have the person who writes the
file run a Macro before sending it to me. Will a Mac WP Macro work in

when opened in WP, only when a converted html file is opened. While
find/change sounds all well and good, I don't seem to be able to copy the
odd Euro symbol replacement (two questions marks (one upside down) in an
open topped basin) so that I can do a find/change when I open the file in
WP. What is that symbol and can I recreate it in the find/change dialog
