When you go to Edit > Links, what happens when you click "Links"?

An "Edit Links" box comes up with over 100 lines of "8x16_spacer.png PNG-Portable Network G Graphic Manual"

Maybe you (or other persons) have copied some formatted content into your file together with the links.
Never paste formatted contents from foreign sources. You can not control if unnecessary contents and formatting properties will be inserted into your file. Use the "Paste special - As unformatted text" option.
