Being 100% serious, I saw a guy in my Computer Programming I class using MS Word to write code that he would copy, then paste into notepad. When I asked him why he did that, he said, "Microsoft Word is easier to read than notepad."

He ended up dropping the class and changed majors.

    There is literally no better way that could have turned out.

    My current CS class we have to write code in our editor then copy paste into word to turn it in. It's the dumbest thing ever and I guarantee there are people in my class just writing it in word.

    I recently had code in MSWord, too. But only copied from Notepad++ and because I wanted to see two pieces of pseudocode open at the same time and didn't want to mess with multi-instance Notepad++, saving my temporary documents somewhere and so on. And the original Notepad can't be set to black, so of course that wasn't an option. :D

    Word is better than notepad, because Ctrl+Z is better and you can make your own syntax highlighting. I'm only being half sarcastic.

    @AL1L It only makes sense when you copy text from an IDE into ms word. Otherwise I'd at least use Notepad++.
