I don't recall ever hearing of a rule anything like that. As far as I know,
the "rule" is basically the way I did it in my last message, and the only
place that I've ever seen text laid out typographically as you've described
is in early printed books -- when there were hardly any rules in some ways,
too many rules in other ways, and whatever rules that did exist were just,
well, weird. %}
You're welcome (again). :)
