Thank you very much for responding, Michael.
In my application I wanted to present 4 lines of text that will be
printed on mailing labels. Ideally I want the user to be able to make
the choice of formatting and see the result immediately. It looks like
your idea will work fine on the actual printing of the labels.
I may be able to purchase a control (an ActiveX grid) from a third party
vendor which provides the desired functionality.
