In my Word 2003 installation, the units for the rulers have changed somehow from inches to a very small unit, possibly twips or picas.  How can I change them back to inches (I looked in Options, and couldn't locate anything, but I may have missed it).

You can change the measurement units of your ruler from inches to metric on the General tab of the Options dialog box (Tools menu, Options command).
