Hi folks, 

I have the same problem, not with headlines, but with pictures. If I have got 
a page with three columns of text. In the left upper corner, there is a 
picture over two columns. The last line in the right coloumn ends before the 
columns in the other two columns.

I would be very glad to hear about a cool "secret-not-yet-found" feature or a 
propper workaround.

Did you all get it in my horrible english?

Thanks at all
