You're right, when you straddle two cells, if one contains an empty pgf,
that pgf disappears. But you don't need three pgfs, just two. Why do you
want to make the "Caution" pgf a run-in head?
Let's say your current third cell contains a CautionText pgf. Redefine
it to have "Caution" as the autonumber (apply a char tag to the
autonumber so the word "Caution" looks the way you want it). You don't
need an empty run-in CautionHead pgf to do something that the autonumber
property of the following pgf can do.
