I have extensively used the GCG program Publish for similar representations.  I
haven't tried it for exactly this case but it should work.  Within the Publish
menu, answer FCKKKKKK.....i to specify your translation first, then your novel
sequence, then all the other sequences, and finally a blank separator line. 
Make sure to specify your MSF sequences properly, e.g. Pileup.MSF{novel}.  Give
it a try, my users are generally quite pleased with the results.
