I have had a do-it-yesterday Word 2003 project dumped on me and I am not a Word macro wizard.  I need to make a section of text  visible if a bookmark contained in that section has non-blank text in it; otherwise, that same block of text must disappear from view; it must reappear if the content of the bookmark goes back to non-blank text.

This is easy to do manually - I select the text that I want to hide, right-click, select font, and check the box to hide the text, or uncheck it, as needed. I just need to automate this based on the content of the bookmark.
