formatting gone wild

I translated a text using Wordfast. It gradually began to reformat, changing colours, underlining where ther was no underlining, etc.
Now everytime I try to recreate the original format the text just jams for ages, or else does other totally irrational things like e.g. when I want to simply increase font size for one title line, it changes the colour or underlines or centres the rest of the document. It's driving me wild, but I can't send it back like that, as the original was fine. But it's late, and I'm totally fed up with it.....

| Try opening it in Word XP.... || Jan 9, 2005 |
I do not know if this will work: I have Trados and sometimes it does those things... What I found out by chance was that it damaged the document in an undetectable way, in my Word 2000, but when I passed it to my husband's computer (with everything XP), it opened a dialogue and the programme repaired it and asked me to save it. From there on it was solved...
Maybe if you copy the text and paste it in a new document, or if you want me to try opening it with Word XP, just let me know...
Best of luck,
