    If the only copy you have is a unicode text file then many things,
    such as the font, font size, underlining etc have not been saved, only
    the text itself has been saved.

    One thing is to open the text file in say notepad, select all, then
    copy and paste into a new Word Perfect file. This should give you

    Prevention is better than cure, saving as you go along, means that if
    this happens only the few changes since you last saved should be
    affected, rather than several hours work.

    yours sincerely
