# [texhax] \textpos and more

The Textpos package is a great thing, allowing me to put blocks of text
anywhere on the page, and still get the benefit of TeX's composition within
those blocks.

Does anyone know of a way to specify a list of blocks, so that text would
automatically overflow from one block to the next?  This would require
specifying a height as well as a width for the blocks.

Alternatively, is there any recommended way to estimate how many line would
fit in a given height, so I can break up the text beforehand?  This would,
of course, create problems with hyphenation on the last line of a block of
text.

Thanks,
