Thanks for the hint! I tried

\usepackage{everypage}

but that doesn't seem to work. Is that what you had in mind?

I am slightly surprised that people seem to think this is such a strange

indentation of the first line on that page just doesn't look right to me
-- am I the only one who feels that way?
