Thanks, everyone!

Kathleen Padova diagnosed the problem: a chapter had even page on the Page
Layout. Corrected that and it cured the problem - and saved the atmosphere from
becoming only "slightly" blue from unseemly language.

I inherited this document, and I've spent TWO days cleaning up the formatting
and getting rid of all the unnecessary styles. From experience, I've learned to
keep all formatting VERY clean - a bad code can really screw things up.

Thanks again to all the suggestions. I appreciate each and every one.
