Re: mystery to me: negative values for Space Below

Correct, and that is as it should be.  Remember, Frame does *not*
add the Space Below to the following Space Above to determine the
real spacing, as Word (and pretty much all the rest of the world)
does.  Instead, Frame compares the two values, and uses the larger
of them as the actual spacing.  So to get any particular spacing,
you must check both values, and make sure the larger is the one
you want to see... and of course, 0 is larger than -10. ;-)
