If it possible to place text into a visibly framed box, I wish to do this to add some information to a page and wish it to standout but be visibly contained.

Hi there Rob,

At the moment to create a text box you need to use HTML. Fortunately there are a number of useful generators that will generate the code for you, so you don't need to write the code yourself.

Here is an example of a text box using htmlbasix: <a href="http://mytextboxtest.synthasite.com/&....

If that is what you are looking for, visit: <a href="http://www.htmlbasix.com/table1.shtml...; :

1. Fill in the form and customize your text box. In the example above, I used a border of 2 px and a width and height of 50%. The text box is left aligned. You can set all of these attributes to your own requirements.
2. When you are done, click "generate" and then copy and paste the code into an HTML Widget in the Sitebuilder.

You can also add this piece of HTML code:
`<textarea cols="20" rows="10">Add text here</textarea>`

You can edit the numbers to the dimensions you would like to use and paste the text into the area marked "Add text here"

I hope this helps.

Cheers.

I had worked out to do it with an iframe and a html document, but I need to be a paid up member to upload the html doc, and currently (with the non-action on the blog thing) that isn't going to happen.

Thanks again.

Thanks again.
