Unwanted pattern matching

I have a simple document - no (intentional) tables or graphs or paragraphs
or anything.

Here's some text.

A 8
A- 7
B+ 6
B 5
B- 4
C+ 3
C 2
C- 1

The problem is that when I hit a carrige return after "c- 1", a "D-" is
automatically inserted on the next line. If I hit <cr> after "B- 4", a "C-"
is inserted. The "A-" doesn't have this problem. Somewhere a pattern seems
to have been established. How can I get rid of this?

TIA

See http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting/TameAutoFormat.htm. The most likely
culprits are "Automatic numbering" and "Format beginning of list item like
the one before it."
