No modern word processor has a “reveal codes” feature. You know why? Because no modern word processor does its formatting by embedding formatting codes in the text stream.
I’ve hit this in my brief dalliances with WordPerfect, where you might be deleting text immediately after a run of, say, bold text, and you start deleting into the bold text, and because you have deleted the “turn bold off” code at the end of that run, suddenly all the text from that point on to the end of the document has turned bold.
No modern word processor suffers from this problem.
