Hi CnetWiz

Rather than editting the registry directly, try using the Office Customization Tool (OCT) or the Group Policy Object Editor.  These will record the changes you have made and allow you to add to them or to reverse them more easily.  If you are only managing one PC, apply the tools to the Local Computer Policy rather than to Group Policy.

The option to "Make hidden markup visible" is located in these tools as follows:

You can find these options at the following locations on the Modify user settings page of the OCT:
Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007/PowerPoint Options/Security
Microsoft Office Word 2007/Word Options/Security

You can find these options at the following locations in User Configuration/Administrative Templates node of the Group Policy Object Editor:
Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007/PowerPoint Options/Security
Microsoft Office Word 2007/Word Options/Security
Note:  
To use Group Policy to manage the 2007 Office system, you must load the Office 2007 Administrative Templates (that is, .adm files) into the Group Policy Object Editor.
 
Hope this helps...    Frith
