To get dropcaps, use picinpar (which defines the window environment) as 

\begin{window}[0,l,{\yn T},{}]
\noindent he paragraph with the opening dropcap; note that
the first letter of the opening word (i.e., the `T' of the `The')  is 
in the options to {window}.
The \yn macro was defined as: \font\yn=cmr17 scaled \magstep5

See ``The \LaTeX Companion'' p. 53 for more information on picinpar.
