Hm. I wonder if that's because Word sees the text as being styled with our Select-All, One Font, One Size, One Etc changes as a style override.

What happens if you select all, then set the style to something innocuous; normal maybe.

You're welcome! It's gratifying to know that among all the shots in the dark I've made, one or two have found their mark.

Best regards,

Word has a deformatting command which is a little icon that says Aa in the font formatting tools section. These removes all formatting and sets everything to the default font style, whatever that is set to.

However if you life that deformatted text and put it in a html text editor and then read the code you will find that most of it is marked with Word's special html way of doing things.

In other words the removal of formatting only means the removal of everything which is not the default settings behind the scenes.

I used to struggle with this when converting my books into html in preparation for kindle format but I found it was easier to just deformat completely wiping out all formatting and then to reset it as intended in an html editor like Expression Web or Dreamweaver.

Yeah, when you bring Word's HTML into the discussion, Rationality leaves the room in a huff.
