How do you wrap the text in a text box so that it fits round a picture ?
Thanks very much

I don't think you can do this in BlueVoda itself. You can, however, do it in another application, like MS Publisher, save it as an image then insert the image into you BlueVoda page. This isn't very good for search engines though as they will not 'read' the text in the image.

With respect and thanks to Maj. Gen. Amanda Girlonthehill for her reply to Robert Clark, would anyone from the Help Desk, or our learned Supremo from SHAEF (or wherever!) please tell us:
Is there a mechanism in BlueVoda which formats images and text the same way that MS Word does?
The Tutorial Video does not address this problem.

MS Word is NOT something that should EVER be used when desiging a website - it will put in all kinds of extra code, etc.

If you want text to appear above, to the side and below a picture - your best bet is using tables.

Thank you Col. Bethers.
Please rest assured I would not use MS Word in website design. I was merely trying to give an example of the sort of formatting I wanted to use.
I will try using tables, and shriek, moan, and complain if it doesn't work.

Its not quite text wrapping, but you can place an image over a text box, then send the image to the back & arrange the text around the image by using your spacer bar & return buttons. Its not quite the same but might solve a problem. Bit like this one in the center frame http://www.collectors-info.com/ (http://www.collectors-info.com/)
But check in a few browsers that it looks ok.

Thank you Chris. That's very kind of you. Your image of the old microscope does exactly what I want.
