When inserting a cross-reference, NWP optionally can append "above" or "below". If this option is selected, above/below is automatically followed by a comma, but it is not preceded by a comma.
Is NWP's behavior grammatically correct? I've always used a second comma preceding the above/below, but I may be wrong. In other words:
"page 2 above, ..."
I customarily write:
"page 2, above, ..."
(This is a grammar question, not a bug report.)

For my taste, you're right, although ordinarily, I would use brackets rather than commas.

For me NWP does not add any commas, eg: the cross-ref appears as "page 2 above". Can either of you send in a feedback report with a document where this is misbehaving?
