FrameMaker 7.0p577, Mac OS X 10.4.11, FrameMaker files possibly with some Word 
dross. (Yes, i know it's an old version, best I can do at present.)

The spell check stops in the space before a cross-reference, showing 'Extra 
space?'. There is no supernumary space in the text on screen. The objects 
displayed in the spell check dialog show a period followed by a character that 
looks like a small circle with an arrow at about 320 degrees. Neither of these 
objects occur in the text on screen. Repeatedly clicking 'Start checking' does 
not move the spell check past the offending text.

Retyping the relevant text and reinserting the cross-reference does not affect 
this behavior. The text in the file is fine on the screen and in PDF, but the 
spell check is responding to something invisible in the file that appears to be 
resistant to removal.

Anyone any ideas? This sort of thing spooks me. I am already aware of the 
adjudications for safe handling of material from Word, but it's far too late to 
redo any of this.
