[Enter] key in Word 2000 skips to end of page and...

If I type 1[enter]2, the 1 is on the top line, left margin, and the 2 is at the bottom of the page, left margin.  If I follow that with [enter]3, the 1 stays at top left, the 2 is in the middle of the page, left margin, and the 3 is on the bottom line, left margin.  If type [enter]4 after the 3, the 1 is on line 1, left, the 4 is on the bottom line, left, and the 2 and 3 are on the left margin with equal vertical space between the 1,2,3,and4.  It doesn't seem to be a margin thing, as i can type [enter]55555555555555555555555, and that becomes the bottom line and everything else moves up with equal vertical distance between the lines.

I've never seen or heard of anything like this.  Any clues?
