    Unwanted line in header (2000)

    I am typesetting a book using Word 2000 running on XP Home. We are using end notes at the end of each chapter. These begin with a short - 5cm(?) - faint line followed by the end notes - this is normal I think. However when the end notes run over onto a second page the first thing to appear on the page is a faint line running the width of the page - ie the width of the text. It seems to be in the header because when I click the header it appears -bold - in the header panel. But, I cannot remove it. It won't highlight. Is it normal to have this lone irremovable line when using endnotes that run over from one page to the next.

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Do the following:
    1) Switch to Normal view (if you're in another view).
    2) Select View | Footnotes.
    3) At the top of the footnote/endnote pane, there is a dropdown list that says "All Endnotes".
    4) Click the dropdown arrow and select Endnote Continuation Separator. You'll see the line.
    5) Select the line and delete it, or click after the line, then press Backspace twice.
    6) Click the Close button in the footnote/endnote pane.
    7) Switch back to your original view.
