> one column or two column, with or without sideheads.
> However, when I look at the file's underlying MIF syntax I did find
> <DFluidSideheads No> lurking in the Document Properties section. Changing
> the tag to <DFluidSideheads Yes> had no visible effect on the document. The
> MIF Reference Online Manual (FM 7.0) I have does not document this tag, so I
> am at a loss as to what it does.
