I've written something in LaTeX, which unfortunately now needs to be converted to word.

I want to do a find and replace on the .tex file to format the text, which works fine for subscript, but breaks on superscript. This is because the LaTeX command for superscript is ^, which word has reserved for special characters, so ^p is paragraph, for example. Is there a way in word to actually search for a caret and replace it?

Yes, use the Special Character submenu, and pick "Caret character." [Smile]

(Which incidentally, is "^^" [shades of \\ for \])

Works a treat! Thanks.
Turns out, my eyesight is not as good as I thought it was. I looked in the special characters, and didn't see the caret replacement
