The Microsoft Office 97 Resource Kit, incorrectly states on pages 596 and 599, that "redlining is converted to comments."


Redlining format from WordPerfect versions 5.x and 6.x is actually converted into inserted text revision marking.

Redline is a font format that WordPerfect uses to designate text that has changed or that was inserted during the document review process. The converters that Microsoft Word uses to import WordPerfect 5.x and 6.x documents change any WordPerfect redline format to inserted text revision marking.
