( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I bow to the excellence of you code!! Well I would if my back didn't hurt. This is such an advance over my effort that I will with your permission and with suitable credit steal this code for my Lisp package. Theft is the highest praise for someone else's work ;) This comes at a particularly opportune time— I've decided to forgo the use of the figurine fonts in favor of the ordinary fonts; i.e. LinaresFigurine ⇒ Linares. I'm doing this because this lets me mix normal text and figurine in one font. Your block_justify is just the thing to fold into the mix with this change. I'll update this node with the new result.

Liking Postscript as you do, have you ever tried Forth? My only complaint about Postscript is that Warnock should have copied all of the Forth vocabulary not just some. Cool thing is that, that is easily fixable using the language itself
