Start printing the free text of the followng lines up to %%endtext.

When a line of text starts with %%, these characters are removed, but they are needed for compatibility with ABC programs which don't handle the %%beginxxx .. %%endxxx sequences.

The values of option are described in %%textoption.
When option is omitted, it defaults to the current %%textoption value.

Inside the free text, an empty line starts a new paragraph. Page breaks (start of new pages) cannot occur in the middle of a paragraph.
