Opening the Reveal Codes window is a lot like raising the hood of a car. You're going under the hood of a document to see exactly how formatting codes control the appearance. There is no comparable feature in Microsoft Word. This is where WordPerfect distinguishes itself from the competition. No other application gives you the same power and flexibility.
When you turn on Reveal Codes, the document window is split in half. The Reveal Codes window takes up the lower half of the screen (see Figure 5.12). In this window, you see a duplicate of the text in the document window with the codes displayed.
