This page is for discussing the contents of Widow.

According to Wikipedia and various dictionaries, an orphan is NOT a widow at the top of the next column or page: it is the first line of a paragraph appearing on its own at the bottom of a page [or column] with the remaining portion of the paragraph appearing on the following page [or column].
So which of these definitions is correct?
And if PrintWiki is correct, what is term for the first line of a paragraph when it stands alone at the bottom of a page or column?
