I need to prepare a long manuscript that must be submitted in a Microsoft Word document in order to meet the submission criteria. (Please no "Don't use Word" comments.)
I want to use a text editor on my Linux computer (Ubuntu). I will eventually paste the content into a Word document when it is finished. I don't have access to Word just now and I cannot test this.
I will probably use a mixture of different text editors as is usual.
Is there anything I need to watch out for, such as line endings and text encoding, so that I don't need to rework the text when I paste it into the new format and OS?
