Description rmano 2010-09-23 17:17:30 UTC
Binary package hint:

I have made a file, clean.doc, with MS Word for Windows 2007.

Then I edited the file in, version 1:3.2.0-7ubuntu4.1, and added 
few char and highlighted a couple of words; saved the file as a .doc.

Opening again the file in MS Word, I discovered that the highlighting made with is permanent. It is impossible to remove (select the background icon, set 
it no color, nothing happens). You have to delete the text and rewrite it, or 
copy as text to delete the highlighting in word. This is a very nasty 
interoperability problem.

The highlighting done in word is editable both ways. Saving the file in .odt and 
opening it in Word (with the appropriate filter) does not solve the problem.

Test file, and more technical comments attached to the ubuntu bug:
