I don't use PCTeX (nor Windows or Word), but on a Mac BBEdit
identifies your file as UTF-16 Little-Endian, with Windows line
endings (CRLF). Is there a way that Word could save it as UTF-8
instead? Maybe that could work.
Or why don't you try TeXmaker?:
I think you can use its many buttons as you're using your autocorrect
