I also saw the converse, namely all but the last line of a paragraph on one page and its last line on the next page.
I apologize for getting even further off topic, but I'm intrigued by this widows and orphans thing. I've never used it in any of my CSS, but I regularly have ebooks that will have all but the last line or two of a paragraph on one page with its last line or two on the next page. Is this because the publisher is using widows/orphans or is it because they're not?
