Thanks for your help with this, Stefan. I'm not sure what ReportBehaviour 90 is. Could you expand a bit?

If I've got your idea right, the suggestion is to print responses in two or more columns, with each column having a different font. Is that correct?

I can picture doing that by using landscape page orientation instead of portrait, but I guess the line length would prove a bit limiting if I moved to more than two columns.
