Dear readers of this list,
I would like to use big numbers at the beginning of paragraphs just like
droppedcaps. However, if I use the DroppedCaps-macro with numbers, it
does not work. See the example below - a letter works, a number not. How
can I use numbers like droppedcaps?

Thanks for helpful hints in advance

Yours sincerely

Tobias Hilbricht
