I created an apparent "line" within a cell by using the long dash key to split points within a cell. I cannot now remove this "line". It takes on a life of its own. When I try to delete this "line", it moves above the para, below the para, goes bold. In Jan 7 2010, ekw put the problem very clearly: "If I try to split the cell, the line goes with the split and is in both cells. If I add a row, the line is in the new row also. In one case the line is bold and another case the line is thin". Answers appeared to treat it as a drawn line, which it is not. ekw did not know how one of his contributors had managed to insert this "line". I do... but still don't know how to get rid of it. I tried to delete all the text - one bold "line" still remained and refused to be deleted.
