When I first open a blank Word document the cursor start position is at the
very top edge of page. When I open and then close View Header/Footer and then
close it the cursor and start position is then at the correct position
relative to the 1" top margin. I have replaced normal.dot with several
versions and get the exact same results. Once header/footer is viewed all is
well until the next time I open a blank document.

I'm sorry I don't have the answer, and I just started having this same problem. If you have any updated information or a solution, I'd appreciate hearing. Thank you. WW

Put your mouse on the top of your page and when you see the "Hide White Space" icon (two white boxes with up and down arrows inside), click. You will now 'see the white space'.
