understand what you mean. I looked up "parbox" but did not understand  
the matter. While I am reasonably fluent in English when it comes to  
the humanities, I have difficulties working with a (to me) new  
technical vocabulary. I have downloaded seven manuals concerning  
LaTeX and, generally, I find there what I need. But sometimes...
