This is getting more interesting. \f does work in FrameMaker 7, but it only 
finds some instances of the '.\f' combo I'm trying to find.

However - and it's a big 'however' - the source came from Word, and the 
instances of '.\f' that FrameMaker *is* finding are those I've typed, but not 
those that came from Word. My guess is that - for the Word-sourced material - 
what looks like a period/end of flow on screen is something else, and/or has 
some invisible Word-type-crud after the period but before the end of the flow. 
And copying them from the document to the Find field doesn't work either: 
copy/pasting the period alone works, but doesn't work when '\f' is added to the 
find string.

Probably the best way to sort this is to de-table the lot, MIF-wash it and 
re-table it all again, but it's Sunday...

So the bottom line is that '\f' is what I was looking for - the Word crud is my 
problem. So double thanks ;-)
