convert it), but he did send me an rtf file which also does not open in
WP but I did open it in MS Word but the numbering restarted at 1 after
any normal paragraph, but on his printed original those numbers continue
to the end of the document. In MSW the Euro symbol has turned into the
letter 'i' which one cannot just convert because all 'i' would be turned
into Euro symbols. The fractions have turned into underscores.
I was sent a file converted by his version of WP into html and when I
reopen that in WP 3.5e the numbering is retained BUT the tab after it has
vanished and I really need the tab so I can format the page into a decent
format that make some sense. However, the Euro symbols have been
replaced with '¤' which turns into square boxes when viewed in
html in a browser. I suppose those could be changed with a macro.
