In case anyone is curious about a solution to my "ghost" field code

I isolated the part of the line that had the "ghost" field code (by putting
a carriage return after that portion of the line), and then I inserted a
text box around it. Then I deleted the text box (somehow capturing the
offending material). That worked! (Nothing else I had tried worked, and
turning on the reveal Field Codes setting didn't show up anything. I had 3
other indications of my problem, the most prominent of which was the
skipping of figure numbers.)

I hope no one has ever run into this problem -- or will in the
future. ;-)
