You are right! I re-did the positioning of the begin/end of italics tags as you suggested, and deleted the text, in the 2nd paragraph, that was not showing up, and re-entered each of those sentences, one-by-one, making a new RTF each time to verify that each added sentence was being printed along with superscript and endnote. My FJ report is finally perfect...I don't know what that invisible character was that caused this, but it's gone now.
Thank you again for all the work you did to help me...I bet you can stand on your head and spit wooden nickels too! ;-)
