    Scientific symbols are changed when pasting text into word 2003

      An old silver surfer who does archive work  for charity (copying and pasting abstracts in medical articles using Adobe X) has found that in

      the past few weeks, symbols such as = are printed as a quarter, and it can't deal at all with < (underlined). These are all commonly found in medical papers. I upgraded to the latest version, hoping that the bug would have been fixed, but alas, it's still there.

       

      I like Word 2003 for its simplicity and do not wish to upgrade. Recent clean resintall, so there should not be malware etc. (I'm well protected). Is there any setting I can change to permit me to cut and paste as before? Accurately.
