I used your suggestions from an earlier email. They worked better than
the ones I was using; however, it still fails to keep in sync with the
page or writes a totally cryptic header. Since it works correctly on
some pages and wrong on others, I am trying to diagnose exactly what is
causing it to fail. So far my Sherlock Homes skills are betraying me.

I am thinking of creating a stripped down document that still exhibits
the problem I am describing and forwarding it to you for your analyses.
I fully realize that this is not your problem nor what you do; however,
if you are interested please let me know. We could do this off-list so
as not to pollute the forum environment. I take no offense if you are
not interested. In any case, thanks for your assistance. At least I am
heading in the right direction.

It's interesting to think that many quite
distinguished people have bodies similar to yours.
