Hi Mike,

Seems to work if you add:-

.am pg@top
. t*hm

Somewhere near the top of The man page says:-

       A  table  which  does not fit on a partially filled page is printed 
automatically on
       the top of the next page if you append the little utility macro  t*hm  
to  the  page
       header macro of your document’s main macro package.  For example, say

              .am pg@top
              .  t*hm

       if you use the ms macro package.
