Subject Re: Word round trip issue? And round trip in general.
Date Sun, 05 Jul 2015 19:05:32 GMT
I think this belongs in our test cases and not in jira, any document we
come across that creates problems should be added as a test case.

Of course, if needed it can be suplemented with a JIRA so we do not forget
the problem.
