In a standard TeX installation, it is not possible to make this
type of paragraph without massive amounts of manual intervention,
because TeX's paragraphs cannot (normally) contain holes.

However, VTeX does not have that limititation, and the OS/2 and
Linux versions of it's TeX compiler are free (as in beer). See
