I am working on a project with a dictionary format. The headline for  
each page
should have the first and last words defined on the page. Two columns
makes it easier to read and to use. So, I want this:

WWW		1	  ZZZ

WWW xxxx	YYY tytyttyt
xxxxxxxxx	tytytytytyty

XXX bbbb	ZZZ tytytytyy
bbbbbbb		tytytytytytyty

I have tried to use eplain's columns, but the only marks that I can  
get to
appear in the headline are YYY and ZZZ. I have tried to implement the
suggestions for smart marks that Knuth makes in The TeXBook
(pp. 158-260), all to no avail.

Any suggestions? Any assistance gratefully received.
