Clint:

Nope, no tab or space in the autonumber box.

The boxes don't effect the printed output at all. As far as I've been
able to determine, they are markers that point to the file I used to
create these files.

The first file, the one with the T, I renamed to a new name.  The T
marker points to the original name of the document.

The other four files, one with a T and three with a box marker, all
point to the file I copied to create those four files.

I've been looking through my two reference books (Adobe's User Guide
and Adobe's Classroom in a Book) and the online help, but I haven't
been able to narrow it down further than they appear to be related to
coping and/or renaming the files.
