    I have Word 2003 and I have a symbol appearing throughout my documents and coming uo when I start a new page as well. I thought it might have been a smart tag (not that I know what that is) but I followed the procedure for getting rid of smart tags and that hasn't worked.

    This is two straight upright parallel lines with a small solid semi circle at the top of the left line.

    What it is and how do I get rid of them all over my page in between text.

    Thanks
