I did as you suggest. Both the postscript and the tiff version look
basically the same. Here's a meagre representation with XXX for page 1 and
YYY for page 2.


                   | This is about where the page is cut off in landscape.

The part where the problem occurs is between the two pages - or rather
where the pagebreak is mean't to be. This is signified in the original
ascii code as a (^L) or hex 0x0c. I am now convinced that TEXTFMT does not
like this page break symbol. Is there another way to get textfmt to break
pages in designated spots - other than padding out with blank lines ??
Maybe another symbol is required to signify a page break?

Otherwise is there another utility other than textfmt that would work

Any help on this one greatly appreciated...
