I have just finished to convert a book from FM7.0 to XML and I discovered that the xml is littered with unicode FFFD characters (which does not exist and therefore results in garbage) at the end of almost every para.
Upon inspection of the various files used during the production of the book I discovered that they appeared during the import from MSWord2000 into FM; they are not visible, but they are there since you can count the bytes.
This is not a big problem since it does not affect the PDF for print production and a global replace can cure easily the xml files, nevertheless this is annoying and potentially dangerous.
Anyone has ever incountered such a problem ?
