Default Change widow and orphan settings?

I use Word 03/XP. The widow/orphan control prevents individual lines in a paragraph from appearing at the beginning of a page. Can I change this to cover more than one line?

No, this is just an on/off setting, I'm afraid.

No, but you can use "Keep lines together" to keep an entire paragraph
intact.
