Why are you ready to give up? I suggested four possible places where
such a thing could possibly  come from, and while you've ruled out (a)
and possibly (b), there are still (c) and (d) to consider. Try
removing each extension in turn and regenerating the page. If it's
still there, the most likely candidate will be one of the static
templates--get rid of those and use css-styled-content instead!
