Unwanted control characters in WB

we have lately noticed a lot of unwanted control characters in the source and the target segments in our workbench. We had been wondering why some sentences did not appear in concordance and when editing the translation unit we noticed them. They do not change the format of the unit, at least not visibily and often look something like this:
Center{\charrsid12525996 }der
Sometimes they even appear in the middle of a word.
Does anybody know where they come from and how to eliminate them (other than manually)? Does it have to do with poorly formatted texts?
oh - we are using Workbench, build 218 and Word 2002
thank you all
