I just upgraded to a new computer running Windows XP Home edition and upon
loading my AutoCAD LT 2000, several times, I can't get multiline text to
underline only the words that I want underlined (I'm using AutoCAD LT98 with an
LT2000 upgrade). The darn thing always underlines everything after I click OK.
It will be fine in the text window when editing, but as soon as I click OK,
everything is underlined. This even happens to existing multiline text that
