This is a trivial issue, but every field in my Writer documents is displayed
with a blue squiggly line beneath it just as if it were a spelling error.
I've looked around in vain for a way to disable spell checking of fields (if
that is indeed what is causing the annoyance).

By "field" I mean things like page numbers, cross-references and such.
Cross-references to "reference" rather than "page number" seem to be a
special case, though, as sometimes they only have the squiggly line in
footnotes, but sometimes it appears in both body text as well as footnotes.

The Tools|Options sections of Writer only seem to permit changing (or
eliminating) the normal background color used to mark the fields, and I was
unable to locate anything in the spell check stuff to ignore fields.

This is obviously a pretty trivial thing, but if anyone knows why this
happens or if there is anything I can do to "clean up the display" I would
appreciate it.

Thanks, and have a great New Year.
