Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
And then I get my other ("sub") page example.com/folder/page5.htm - which has nothing to do with <blue widgets> - indexed in lots of high PR sites...
After that, when somebody looks for <blue widgets>, will my main page improve its position on the results because one of the sub-pages (which has nothing to do with the theme) got a high PR from having lots of indexes?

Google likes links to pages with good, on-topic content. I noticed many examples where such links helped in ranking. It looks almost like there were 'backward PageRank' involved, however, I'd bet it's rather all about relevant outbound links factor.
I will include a link from "page5.htm" back to the main URL as suggested by Kryton.
Thanks both of you for the advice.
Now, since both pages are in the same (own) domain, will the PR "page5.htm" gets be wholy transferred to the main URL, or just partially?
