    Where is this job application box at? Online? The Word document has specific formatting in code that is hidden (try opening up a Word document in NotePad or another plain text editor sometime and you will see) and this formatting is only readable by a word processing program such as Word or WordPerfect or Write (part of Open Office).
    To save the formatting as you have it, save the Word document as a .pdf file - either use Adobe or get a free .pdf converter.
