That ed may be a dollar sign. When I used HotDots, the dollar sign p was
the code for taking a new paragraph. Braille translation was a multistage
process in which the original file was read by the Braille translator and
examined for formatting. Then the Braille translator put in its own
formatting codes such as dollar p for new paragraph, dollar s to skip a
line, etc. There were quite a few of them. Once this file was created, the
next stage was to translate the file into Braille that would be correctly
formatted. The translation was a four-stage process, but I don't remember
what all four were at the moment.
Anyhow, that was my first thought when you wrote that. Sheer speculation would be that perhaps someone scanned this, decided to make a Braille translation, then sent up the wrong file. I'm not sure how that could happen by accident, as I don't think the file extension would be rtf, but perhaps.
Why not just do a search and replace and replace the character string with nothing?

Black William is just full of end of line (read ed sign p) in the middle of lines where it does not belong. Someone with more ability than I have may want to work on this.
