    With the current emacs display engine, there is no way
    to display something simple like


    The best emacs can do is:


    as it has a primitive "no overlapping line" display model.

In a word processor, what constructs would give you something like
that?  I have no idea what HTML constructs could produce such a
layout; if there is a way, it must go beyond the simple HTML markup
that I know.

It seems to me that Emacs would be an adequate word processor for
editing things like manuals, and web pages that are mainly substance,
even if it could not do anything like this.
