        Is there a way of printing the string/line in the `manuscript' file 
along with the line
        number?  I'm well into a copyedit of the manuscript and would rather 
not start over!

        thanks for this.

        Sorry:: sounds a bit moronic:: not print the blank line/newline!  but 
print the
        NR-1-th line.

Gary,

The following version should do what you want:

BEGIN {
    ncnt = 0
    prev = "BOF"
}
/^ *$/ {
        ncnt++;
        if (ncnt > 3) {
                print "Emphasis at " NR ": " prev;
                prev = "-multiple-"
                ncnt = 0;
        }
        next;
}
       {ncnt = 0; prev = $0}

-mark
