<?> yet another InDesign mystery?

<?>
appears in a text (imported from Word)in ID cs5. It behaves most strange: it can’t be deleted. But it does not belong to the text.

Am I encountering extra-terrestial messages … ??

any help appreciated!

You're probably encountering a bit of markup code that ID doesn't know how to interpret. Try cutting the offending paragraph from the original Word document, pasting it into a simple text editor, re-importing the text into ID, then pasting the simple text copy in place...
