Hi Bud,
Yes, Kurzweil has this feature, and it's a very useful one indeed. What I would 
do from within the file in Kurzweil is select an instance of the header you 
want to remove--just the text, leave the page number in the file. Then hit 
ctrl-h, and ctrl-v to paste the header into the search field. Hit tab once, and 
make sure there is nothing in the replace edit field. Then press alt-a. You 
will be told how many replacements were made. Then, if there are other repeated 
headers in the books, for example if there's title on even pages and author on 
odd, you can continue repeating the above procedure with other headers. This 
procedure even works with messed-up headers. I start at the top of the book, 
and page through it. Every time I see a new header, I repeat this procedure. 
Eventually there are no more pesky headers, and you will have saved yourself 
oodles of time in the process.
