*** I didnt know that...  and explains the trouble.  Thank you.
*** Now my question would be... if I do want a two column page, how
*** can I combine two different edited pages, or text files, each with one
*** column (half a page wide), so the final looks like ONE page with 2 
columns :)
*** Thats all Im trying to do.
*** The first page looks like "aaa's"...        the second page looks like 
                aaaaa |                                                |  
                aaaaa |  (right                             (left    | bbbbb
                aaaaa |    side                              side    |bbbbb
                aaaaa |   empty)                        empty) | bbbbb
                aaaaa |                                                | 

*** in other words, with both page, I pretend a two column layout, but
*** edit just one column width space.
*** _and then combined to one page, with two columns, should look like 

                                     aaaaa | bbbbb
                                     aaaaa | bbbbb
                                     aaaaa | bbbbb
                                     aaaaa | bbbbb
                                     aaaaa | bbbbb

*** How can I do this_ combining two pages or files to one ?
