The code would look something along the following lines:

Sender address
.LO SJ ""
Recipient address
.LO SJ "Subject Line"
Opening paragraph...

Note this is fully blocked style, in simplified style (.LT SP) a blank
line separates the subject line and opening paragraph.  Maybe the styles
are deliberately designed this way but maybe it's a bug.

One other thing that could also be a bug.  The subject line in the above
example prints out okay.  But change the letter style to .LT SP
(simplified) and only the first word prints out (i.e. 'Subject' and nowt
else). You have to use non-breaking spaces i.e. Subject\ Line instead of
quotes to print the whole line.
