Hi Klaus,

Thank you very much for your prompt reply!

Unfortunately, my data are not tagged and I'm not planning to do so unless it's necessary. And then, any way I can tag my data automatically, in order to locate those " ? " ?

Ok, some concordance lines actually don't include any " ? " , and " ' " in original data becomes " ? " so they appear in the result of my searching. Of course, there are accurate concordance lines, but I need to pick them out mannually. Weird!

Hi Li-chin,

What would the character encoding be? And what special characters?

If your original data is tagged, you should be able to search for the question mark tag. I've not had that much trouble doing what I needed to do. (The only exception was that it doesn't offer regular expression support...)

I'm wonder if any WordSmith expert can help me to solve few questions.

1) How to avoid producing those strange codes when transferring my original text data into the txt. files, which is recognized by WordSmith? I have copied the origninal text on Notepad and then save it as txt file.

2) How to search question mark "?" from my data with WordSmith? I used concorrdance to search them but some strange codes came out.

Many thanks
