Glenn may not like this reply but it needs to be said again:
Don't use a word processor to edit text files. See

http://repec.org/docs/textEditors.html#nowp 

Perhaps this should be a FAQ on Stata's web site at http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/ ? -findit text editor-
within Stata gives the link above but the keywords
"text editor" on the FAQ web page does not show the link.
I guess this is a FAQ.
