It works for me (in Word 2002) -- with "Use wildcards" switched off.

To make it work with "Use wildcards" switched on, use ^g^13^13 instead.

I don't have a solution for that one!

For a graphic, switch on "Use wildcards" and use the following lines for
"Find what" and "Replace with" respectively:

("\1" means "the 1st expression, as marked by parentheses".)

Warning: Don't use ^13 in the "Replace with" box, or you'll replace real
paragraph marks (carriage-return/linefeed pairs) with invalid ones
(linefeeds only), which look the same in your document but aren't!

I hope that helps.
