OK, thanks. Could you post the patch then?

In the TeXBook, on page 101, how in the world does Knuth typeset the

Wouldn't that affect only one paragraph?
yes, look into the source ...
Well that's strange - I downloaded the source, and it won't even
tex! Surely Knuth hasn't left a bug in the texbook source?!?!?!
Please read the copyright notice/error message: it is _not_ intended
for producing a DVI document, but to serve as a real life example of a
large document. So it produces an error message when you TeX it. The
main purpose of the error message is not to prohibit compilation (it
is easy enough to patch it away, and it must be localized if the
source should be of use for experimentation), but to make very sure
people read and understand the copyright permission and restriction
before they start anything.
So that one can actually play with the code, the "protection" is
trivial. But you must understand that this file's purpose is not to
save you from buying the book: it is intended to let you make the most
of the book once you bought it.
