So you can't save an item in Word if you're trying to put a question mark in the document name. I either found this out tonight or relearned it after forgetting. It would be nice if some kind of warning popped up, instead of everything freezing, but oh well. I'll have to get it tattooed or something. Kind of puts a crimp in plans for writing a novel called "?????????"

That seems to indicate Edward Albee wouldn't have been able to write 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' or Philip K. Dick 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' What next? The hyphen?

Well you can still put them anywhere in the body of the text. Just not in the file name. Still, it might have interrupted their thought processes so that Albee wrote "Virginia Woolf Isn't That Scary, Once You Start Running Comparisons."
