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.

Have you tried to delete it like you would delete a border? That might be worth a try if it can't be deleted as a row of characters. What happens when you hover your mouse over it? Does the text cursor appear?
