Description richlv 2004-04-02 12:34:13 UTC
in attached msword document there are changes done with track changes feature.
some of them are displayed incorrectly in

i'm not sure if this is connected to other issues with track changes, but these 
are very bizarre.

in point 1.1 (or 1.2, as it is incorrectly displayed in; issue 27373), 
according to word 10/2002, there is some text that has been deleted at the end 
of the second sentence. shows first word of this deleted part as deleted, 
but then some nonexistant words as not deleted. they seem to be formed by adding 
two word endings and forming one word, then comma and one normal word, then 
beginning from one word and ending from another.

then, in point 1.3 (or 1.4, as in 1.1.1) there is some deleted text, but shows one letter of this text as inserted, not deleted.

MRU->MM: There seem to be some kind of "invalid" Redlines in the document. These
are made by a user "Unknown" without a change date. Even Word 2000 isn't able to
handle this doc correctly (displays wrong and loops after a while); Word 2003
can open it and displays all the odd Redlines. I think this is also the reason
why we get loads of Redlining assertions after import.

for writing this document is unknow. But the is correctly displayed with Word 2000.
