Nonstopparagraphing

Once popular in fanzines, now seldom seen; instead of indenting five spaces for each paragraph, the first paragraph begins flush left, the following paragraph begins one line down and two spaces past the last character in the last line of the preceding paragraph.

I did nonstopparagraphing for years when cutting mimeo stencils on a typewriter - it's quite natural there. I could do it fairly easily in the long-obsolete computer typesetter I still use - perhaps I will…. FancyFont allows the position along a line to be remembered for reuse, so that with the addition of "\m1" at the end of a paragraph, and then "\hm1" at the beginning of the new paragraph, the exact same effect would be achieved.
