You are right ; a "widowed line" ( "ligne veuve" or "une veuve") is 
isolated at the end of a page ; while an orphan line (ligne orpheline) 
is isolated at the top of a page.
So, I was wrong in my preceding post : the problem I was speaking about 
(and the corresponding script) relates to "the widowed lines", not the 
orphan lines.
