Ok, needed a break from work, so for fun and for learning something new:



    {\input lorem }

    {\input davis }


\input lorem
\input davis

\NC\input lorem
\NC\input davis

\bTD[roffset=2mm]\input lorem\eTD
\bTD[loffset=2mm]\input davis\eTD

\input lorem
\input davis


The \raise2\strutdp etc. feels like a hack, Wolfgang knows better why it's  
needed, as as how and why the value for one stream affects the other..
