Worst ‘char char’ ever?

July 24, 2014

Back in Word 2000 or Word 2003, ‘char char’ got added to style names. I still don’t know why or how. But with Word 2007 and later, they seem to be gone — mostly.

However, occasionally I see one in the wild (possibly brought in by copy/pasting from another organization’s document?)

This one would be one of the worst I’ve seen in a long time — it has 233 characters in it, including what look to be Thai characters (where did THEY come from?). You can only see the last part of the style name in the image below; the full text in the style name is: Caption,Caption Char Char Char Char Char Char Char,Caption Char1 Char,Caption Char1,อักขระ,Caption1 Char,Caption Char Char Char Char1 Char,Caption Char Char Char Char Char Char Char Char Char1 Char,Caption1 Char Char,Caption Char1 Ch
