%D The only complication lays in \type{\strut}. In \PLAIN\
%D \TEX\ a \type{\strut} is defined as:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \def\strut%
%D   {\relax\ifmmode\copy\strutbox\else\unhcopy\strutbox\fi}
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D But what is a \type{\strut}? Normally it's a rule of width
%D zero, but when made visual, it's a rule and a negative skip.
%D The mechanism for putting things in the margins described
%D here cannot handle this situation very well. One
%D characteristic of \type{\strut} is that the \type{\unhcopy}
%D results in entering horizontal mode, which in return leads
%D to some indentation.
%D
%D To serve our purpose a bit better, the macro \type{\strut}
%D can be redefined as:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \def\strut
%D   {\relax\ifmmode\else\hskip0pt\fi\copy\strutbox}
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D Or more compatible:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \def\strut
%D   {\relax\ifmmode
%D      \copy\strutbox
%D    \else
%D      \bgroup\setbox\strutbox=\hbox{\box\strutbox}\unhcopy\strutbox\egroup
%D    \fi}
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D In \CONTEXT\ however we save some processing time by putting
%D an extra \type{\hbox} around the \type{\strutbox}.
