Try using a fixed width font in Word like Courier New, your ASCII art should display as intended then.
: Word format won't work for those of us who aren't
: operating-system-impaired, and plain text with an
: ASCII art class diagram will be mutilated unmercifully
: when opened in Word.
: Since the TAs didn't actually edit the files we
: submitted last time and sent back a separate grading
: sheet, is there any harm in submitting in a format
: that Word can't edit (such as PDF, which is at least
: halfway-standard, and supported by every platform that
: can run GhostScript)?
: I know that the spec says it must be editable by Word,
: but I've never been one to stick to the spec ;) Along
: those lines, can PDF be added as a file format for
: future specs?
