urgent question: missing comma's in footnotes

 

hi all,

to the admin: sorry for psoting this in several sections of the forum

i would really apreciate your help on this one. 

 

I am using the chicago 15 /16a output styles for footnotes in a terribly large document with over 1000 footnotes. 

For some reason, whenever a book is mentioned the output style makes the following error: 

 

after the book title there should be a comma followed by a space and then pp. x-y. however, it does not create this comma and worse yet, it does not allow me to insert a comma. It automatically removes such a comma after the title thus forcing me to enter a space, then comma, space pp. x-y

 

in short it should be this: 

Arendt and Kohn, eds., Essays in Understanding 1930-1954: Formation, Exile, andTotalitarianism, pp. 368-391

 

but it forces me to do this

Arendt and Kohn, eds., Essays in Understanding 1930-1954: Formation, Exile, andTotalitarianism , pp. 368-391

 

The only way i have found to go about this is to convert the endnote fields to plain text, thus rendering the entire document "flat" and losing endnote functionality. Any ideas?? thanks so much for your help in advance!!!!
