Are you saying that when, with the notebook open in the Front End, you 
select the bracket for a cell -- whatever style the cell might be -- and 
use Delete, the cell does not get deleted?

Even if, by accident, you changed the cell's properties to Not Editable 
(in the Cell menu), Mathematica would still let you delete it.

Could you have changed the cell's properties using the Option Inspector 
by any chance?  That allows you to mark the cell as not Deletable.  To 
check on this, select the cell.  Open the Option Inspector (from Cell 
menu, select Option Inspector).  Expand the section "Cell Options" in 
the Option Inspector's large lower window.  Under the Cell Options 
category, expand the "General Properties" section.   The fourth entry in 
the expanded list will be Deletable.  See whether that is set at its 
default value of True; if not, change it to True.  Click the Apply 
button and close the Option Inspector.  YOu should now be able to delete 
the cell.
