That's not my problem any more. They asked me to prepare long
continuous text with TeX (so that formulae and everything else will be
OK) - they intend to use the resulting PDF to design a magazine in
InDesign after that (I don't know how they're going to do that, but I
assume that InDesign should be able to handle that - if not, I'll
think about that after the problems arise).

He replied faster than I noted ;) Yes, \startTEXpage it's *the*
solution that I wanted, only the vertical shifting after \subject has
to be fixed somehow.
