  Thanks  for  the suggestion. It will work only for
  source texts without hard line breaks within para-
  graphs. But to GROFF, as I understand, a paragraph
  is a sequence of  non-empty  lines  not  beginning
  with  certain control commands, which means I have
  to know the number lines my paragraph will  occupy
  before it has actually been typeset.

  Or  I  have  to stick to long lines (one per para-
  graph), but then what  about  formatting  on  word
  level (like make one word bold)?
