One possibility is to replace all characters by something else. For
example, in Find & Replace, turn on 'Regular expressions' (under
'Other options') and replace '[a-z]' by 'x'.
When you say 'the page breaks are off', do you mean that the page
breaks occur in different places? Are they off by only a little? Maybe
it's because the document uses a font that your system doesn't have so
the font is being replaced by a font with slightly different font
I believe that sometimes the formatting won't be quite the same even
between different versions of Word, much less between Word and another
