Hyperlink in Word 2003 doc appears as code  ?

Hello ,
    I have a person trying to use book marking and hyperlinking in a word 2003 doc. He is able to place his bookmarks into the doc ok and then he can link his index to those ok. But once he creates the hyperlink in the doc it shows up as code rather than just underlining the original text.  Now if I click on the code it works and takes me to the spot in  the document where it should. If I right click on the code and choose Select Hyperlink the code goes away and the original text appears and is underlined like it should be and works. BUT after I save it, close the doc and then open the doc again, it goes back to the way it was. It is obviously a view issue but what????
