Worked perfectly, Pat! In fact, if I had just tried it with the word "Spec " like I showed below, I would have not even had to ask the question! Those letters appear to act like the "x" you mentioned.
I did make a new paragraph format for this table cell too, and that also may have been part of the knowledge that I was missing before.
