In a somewhat related vein, if you want to remove some of the special characters that MSword creates you can use the following code which is based on the excellent demoronizer code.
sub nukeMSsmarts { my $s = shift; # Map incompatible CP-1252 characters $s =~ s/\x82/,/g; $s =~ s-\x83-<em>f</em>-g; $s =~ s/\x84/,,/g; $s =~ s/\x85/.../g; $s =~ s/\x88/^/g; $s =~ s-\x89- /-g; $s =~ s/\x8B/</g; $s =~ s/\x8C/Oe/g; $s =~ s/\x91/'/g; $s =~ s/\x92/'/g; $s =~ s/\x93/"/g; $s =~ s/\x94/"/g; $s =~ s/\x95/*/g; $s =~ s/\x96/-/g; $s =~ s/\x97/--/g; $s =~ s-\x98-<sup>~</sup>-g; $s =~ s-\x99-<sup>TM</sup>-g; $s =~ s/\x9B/>/g; $s =~ s/\x9C/oe/g; # Now check for any remaining untranslated characters. $s =~ s/[\x00-\x08\x10-\x1F\x80-\x9F]/*/g; return $s; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
