        In Microsoft Office XP, many users see flipped images in their documents. These images may be inverted, upside-down, or both inverted and upside-down. Most users can fix this issue quickly if it occurs in only a handful of their documents. However, this problem can be pervasive in organizations because of document-sharing and template sharing; therefore, the issue becomes more complex and sometimes confusing to resolve. Microsoft has released a fix to help correct the problem (Microsoft Knowledge Base article 312838), but the fix and its implementation have in some cases added to the confusion.

        This white paper gives an in-depth history of the issue, in addition to a detailed explanation of the fix, its caveats, various scenarios in which to use its settings, and information about how to educate the organizational end user about this issue.
