Word 2016 - Stubborn Gray Background (JSON pasted from Web Page)

Stephen Kairys
Last Modified: 2016-02-04
In Word, I pasted a snippet of JSON code which (on the webpage) contained a gray background. The background carried over to the DOCX.

Gray Background Mystery
I have tried setting highlighting to white. And shading to NO COLOR. But the gray refuses to go away. I even pressed [SHIFT-F1] to see the formatting info, but nothing jumped out at me.

Scrubbed document attached.
