Stray text problem driving me nuts - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

Two mystery words of text "Flow Rate" appear right above the 2nd down blue bar in this link: http://www.knf.com/labfiltration.htm Nothing is in the source code at that spot. The words are used in column headers. I realize that my html, tables and css are (a bit) messy and probably causing the problem.

    Default Stray text problem driving me nuts

    Two mystery words of text "Flow Rate" appear right above the 2nd down blue bar
    in this link:
    http://www.knf.com/labfiltration.htm
    Nothing is in the source code at that spot.
    The words are used in column headers. I realize that my html, tables and css
    are (a bit) messy and probably causing the problem. This site has evolved over
    8-9 yrs, and started out with Front Page (yuk!!) to DW/CSS and this website is
    a small part of my workload here, so please be nice.
    I tried tagging every HTML instance of those words on the page as a test, such
    as "Flow1 Rate" "Flow2 Rate" to see if it would show up, but it hasn't.
    Any ideas where to look would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I think the problem may be your DW template(s).

    Using the Web Developer toolbar's Miscellaneous > Edit HTML option I was able
    to quickly locate the stray "Flow Rate" text and verify that it was indeed the
    culprit by changing the text on the fly (the text is sitting by itself between
    two tables). However, when using FF's View > Page Source I cannot find the same
    code. The code in question falls within the "Mainbody" part of your template.

    Never having had the need to use DW templates, I'm not familiar with how they
    work, but the above leads me to believe that they are somewhat like includes
    and something in them is creating the additional code/text. Maybe someone more
    familiar with them will chime in.

    In the meantime, I'd suggest using Firefox with the
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/60 toolbar when testing your
    code?it'll save you a ton of time when trying to locate problems.

    Since my other pages based on templates dont show the same problem, I will rebuild the page on a fresh copy of the template. Thanks for the help, you were the only one that did.
