DOCX -> DOC conversion - empty table in header introduces question mark characters


For layout purposes, we sometimes have empty tables in our headers where images can potentially be placed. However, when converting DOCX to DOC, although the table is preserved, ??? characters are introduced.

We have managed to reproduce this on both Windows and Linux environments, running the 11.7.0 version of the Aspose.Words Java library, the JDK is 1.6u21

I have attached table_bug.docx as the input, and converted_table_bug.doc demonstrates the extra ??? characters.

We use very straight forward conversion code:
Document d = new Document(input);
d.save(output, SaveFormat.DOC);

This does not seem to happen in the DOCX to PDF conversion process.

Any workarounds / fixes would be greatly appreciated
