	No. Continuations are those lines starting with "     x " (that
"x" is supposed to be in column 6 -- I see the indentation got lost in
all the quoting of text <G>).

	The "continue" statement is a "do nothing" statement in FORTRAN,
useful for attaching branch labels. FORTRAN syntax would support
dropping the "continue" and putting the label on a nearby executable
statement, IE:

   10	if (ios .eq. 0) then

		...

   20	endif

		...

   30	print *, char(i), '     ', counts(i)

	I just feel that style is ugly, especially if one is trying to
use indentation to reflect the code structure. Also, standard FORTRAN,
while having added a blocked IF, does not have a WHILE statement -- that
is what the "10" loop is emulating.
