Dear Karl, Didier, and Pavel,

Thank you all for your help with this issue. It looks like \parbox'ing the 
subrubrics is the way to go for my current purpose.

Pavel, the sample file you sent didn't arrive at my end, so would you mind 
sending it again, perhaps off-list (not sure whether it has to do with the 
List server).

All the best,
