Why sometimes the formatting of source and target is changed automatically in Workbench?

I am a new user of Trados and I translate by using Workbench.

I have a document in which the whole text is unbold and in a simple format. It works fine until 4th or 5th sentence but after it, the new English (source) and target (my language) sentences automatically become strikethrough. In some files, some of the source text automatically becomes bold or italics. This is very annoying and I can't find any reason for such a mess.

Can I change the formatting manually after translating the document without using the Trados? Will it affect the unclean file?

Could you tell me why does this happen and how can I get rid of this problem?

I use Trados' version 7.0 and Word 2003.

Thanks in anticipation.
