IEEE 'x' at beginning and end of works cited

Nov 1, 2011 at 9:18 PM

I'm using the IEEE citation ( and it's working great, my only problem is I have an 'x' on the first line before the first entry and after the last entry in the works cited/bibliography.  Does anyone know how to get rid of this?

Those x's are hidden. Just turn off the display of hidden symbols (¶) and they will be gone.

The x's are necessary to work around a bug in Word. Without the hidden x's (or any other non space character) Word will add whitespace in front and after your bibliography.
