      Hi all,

      in Front Page you can draw a box in which you can write text later on (for example an oval shape). I can't find this option in DW. Is this possible or are there other ways to get a similar result?
      Thanking in advance,
      Arthur

          No. This is FP-specific invalid HTML. You don't want to even think about
          going there.

          What is it you are trying to accomplish?

            thank you, murray, for your quick respons. I was trying to make a box/balloon (bigger than a normal button) with a couple of lines where in can click on to go to another page. Do you by any change have a simple alternative?

              I'm still not quite clear on what you want. But in general, when I have a
              region where I want to have text, I just put a container there into which I
              will place the text. But my layout methods are likely well beyond what you
              are using. Can you show us a page that can illustrate what you want?

                I'm quite sure your layout methods are well beyond my capabilities. Can't find a page right now that illustrates what I want. Maybe you can explain briefly how you put a container there?

                  Well, not really - since I don't know the context of your needs. But -

                      You're welcome, but I'm certain that came nowhere near answering your
                      question. A look at what you are trying to do would be much better for
                      us.... 8)

                        If you'll show is some FP code doing what you want, we can tell you
                        the best way to achieve it.
