Yes, it's possible.  I have an example somewhere on my system but I'm
not able to find it again.

Try this:

\def\process#1 {\message{^^J#1}\par}
\everypar{\setbox0\lastbox\process}

Unfortunately, I don't have enough time to provide a solution but you
are much more familiar with tex then me, anyway.

Regards,
Reinhard

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
