I am a little mystified though -- we have other writers who use the double hyphens in Word and their files don't cause any problems.
Maybe they have a preference set in Word to convert them to em dashes automatically?
Feel there should be more chatting, more tips, more user interaction?

My Word version has those preferences turned off.

In the trouble file, the double dashes is encoded strange if you look at the document.xml file. In fact, the whole thing has weird encoding in various places.

It would be interesting to know if a new file from this person does this.
