Well, when I do an "unvbox" on the vtop which has the marks, it does work 
(that is, the marks are visible on the page).

The problem though is that totally screws up the layout :(

I have two vtops,  "engbox" and "hebbox", where "engbox" has the marks in it.  
The layout:


lays out just right; but this is very wrong:


In this case, the 'hebbox' content appears one 'paragraph' below the 'engbox' 
contents, rather than to the right as it does when using plain 'box'

So I'm now trying to 'unvbox' a copy of the 'engbox', but now I have extra 
text (and 'lastbox' doesn't seem to remove it...)

But at least it's getting closer...
