Thank you both. I will check these links, mostly for my own
enlightenment. For the moment, I broke the last paragraph of that
page in two paragraphs, and that fixed it for some mysterious reason.
At the same time, the footnote of page 54 and its reference were both
moved to the next page. It's unfortunate to see this bug still present.
