By "nearby," you mean adjacent, right? Rick explained about the marker, but permit me to make a larger point. I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that the reason you didn't know about the marker is because you work with View > Text Symbols turned off. Many Framers seem to work that way. *That*, IMHO, is obviously dangerous. It's far too easy to delete something you didn't intend to -- or, as in your case, fail to delete something you did intend to. I can't _imagine_ editing without being able to see everything I'm editing (x-ref markers, index markers, pilcrows, etc). The only time I turn off Text Symbols and Borders (with one click, thanks to my Microtype-enhanced toolbar) is when I want to see how the page will look when printed/PDFed.
