I usually use -me with VTROFF and I have been having a lot of
trouble getting a title page right, in that my vertical spacing
commands are not honored, at least the first one.  Have I missed
something or is this just a problem.

  This little gem consists of the -me macro package provided in the
4.1BSD distribution, with many of the wierd bugs removed (and some
new ones introduced).  The main contributions are the following:
1.  A new macro (.qs, .qe) for doing diversions with some good degree of
	control.  Makes sorted indexes easy to generate.
2.  A new set of "hooks" for doing section and page headings,
	that allow the user greater control over the format.
3.  A new macro (.fx) which will reset the internal variables to some
	"predefined" set of values.  This is invaluable if, like me,
	you have a tendency to screw up some of the settings.

   In exchange for this little wonder, I want a fix to allow the -me macros
to coexist in peace with the EQN, REFER, and TBL packages.  Down with people
who redefine "standard" macros!

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State
