I can’t see anything amiss but if I retype few words near the problem spot, everything typesets ok. Apparently I must be inadvertently entering something funny in the source but I have not been able to identify a sequence of key strokes that reproduces this problem. I was wondering if others have an answer.

When that happens, I copy the source, paste it into BBEdit, and then have it replace "gremlins" with black dots. It has worked for me very time.
