I received a text doc whose yellow highlights won't turn off

Specs: Windows XP
I received a text document with a lot of yellow highlighting that will not turn off. Aside from trying to erase with the usual highlight tool I also tried tools\option\view\show\highlight to see if that would have any effect - but no go. I can add and erase new highlights, but the existing ones act like they are baked in.

Text files don't normally contain that unless the actual font had it and not a highlight.

What format of file is it?

It's windows 7 word doc. It looks like a regular arial font and it is the same font throughout the document.

Use select tool to select all and set font at top and see if ti changes.

If it is a real highlight then see this. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/w...

Thanks. I tried that but the "highlights" still remain. Could this be some other paint type effect that has to be turned off? Or is there an option for 'Permanent' that has to be disabled?
