After i sent my post I wondered if perhaps there were unseen gremlins in the script.
I copied it out and pasted into BBEDIT and "Zap(ped) gremlins" (one of my favourite BBEDT commands). Pasted the zapped script back into LC and everything was back in sync. How I ended up with some unseen characters in the script I do not know but they are gone now and all is well. Sorry for the disturbance.
