Eileen, I think you're just plain crazy. ;-)

I've never heard or read of allowing a single word orphan just because it
has a certain number of syllables. That was most likely a house rule.

Widows, I believe, are when the first line of a paragraph gets stranded
at the bottom of a page. Orphans are when the last line of a paragraph
gets "pushed off" to the top of the following page. I hope I don't have
this backwards.... 8-(
