Hi there,

We are noticing a similar problem related to autonumbering even without
the MIF conversion you describe.

For instance:

1. Define a paragraph autonumber that includes an em space (\sm) and
some text. (Note:\sm)
2. Reopen the paragraph designer and change only the autonumber text
(change "Note" to "Tip").
Notice that the \sm turns into something weird and renders as a ?? in
your document.

There appears to be a problem with special characters that are inserted
with a backslash (\).

Regards,

Sarah O'Keefe
