 Printing Elements

I am having a problem printing text elements in WinOberon and I wondered
if anyone would have any ideas.  They print fine on the first page, but on
the second page all the text (i.e. not just in my elements) is moved down
by about 1/2 a line, while the lines stay in the same place.  Now I find
that the same thing occurs when I try to print other elements (such as
PopupElems).  They don't work on the second page.

Is this a problem with my printer setup?  Or just another of those
nefarious Oberon printing problems?

Any help would be appreciated - I would like to print more than one page
at a time...

Since the printing problems seem to be rather ubiquitous, here is my
sample text that caused some Oberons to choke. I hope implementors
can use it as a first-order test. It contains a few elements (Parcs
and a StampElem), but otherwise it is an ordinary text with a couple
of sub/superscripts, nothing really special. It looked fine on screen.

I prepared the text under WinOberon and therefore the "Phantom of Oberon"
may be there. I did not check this since the Phantom is a well known problem
and people know how to get rid of it. So here it goes:

             ----------------------------------------
Here is the sample text. I regret I cannot send you a postscript file,
but somehow I was unable to print to a file. I cannot fiddle with Windows
settings since the computer is not mine. Therefore I will simply state
what I can see on a printed page. Hope you will see the same:

1. words are not spaced properly. For example, there is one long word
   "investigatedwith" in the first line of the ABSTRACT, towards the end
   of the line.
2. Subscripts are overlayed over the main text. See the title. Also see the
   bottom of the page, where small "s" is completely misplaced from its "V".
