There's some confusion about what properties are controlled by the "document properties" property. Try Google searches for framemaker document properties and similar phrases, to find old threads. Another approach might be to search a MIF file; perhaps it would be slightly "scientific" if you create a new blank document, save it to MIF, then import document properties only from the bad file, save that to another MIF, open the two MIF files as text files in FM, and use File > Utilities > Compare Documents to look for differences. If this works, we could name the technique after ourselves and place it in public domain for the whole FM-er community<G>.
