One thing, though: If I get the code right, you're doing paragraphs in
Nile1.zob. First, I think FTexts should be able to include newlines;
second, if we want a paragraph to be something else than two newlines, I
think FTextLayouter should be able to place them. Why? Because other
applitudes than nile will want to use them.
Do you think it's possible to do that easily? (Maybe just move the
existing code to FTextLayouter?)
