Highlight it all and try changing the Font.

Hi, what word processor did you use when you first typed it? and what word processor are you using now.

  Wak 12:25 05 Aug 2006

What is the extension of the file??
Is it a .DOC or a .TXT file or is it an image file, .BMP, JPG, or .TIG ?????
Or any other kind of file???
