Thanks, but I left out one itsy-bitsy tinie-winie detail.

I would like the first character of the line to be a form feed (ASCII 12).
I can get that with 
.display _char(12) "This is the title at the top of my page"

but of course I also get
.display _char(12) "This is the title at the top of my page"
printed as the last line of the preceding page.

So if I am creating a text log file, I want to force a form feed and put a
title at the top of the page.  I don't think a comment will work.
