Hi there. . .

I've got a question.  When I write a poem in Word and copy and paste it into the "Message" field, and then hit the "Preview" button to see how it looks. . . it never looks the same.

Case in point, my Gallery Poem for SEA tonight.  It looked great when I did it in Word, but when I cut and pasted it into the message field, it made all the spaces wrong.  And then I had to play with it for about 20 minutes to get to look at least something like I had it originally.  

Is there way that I can make my poems from Word translate better into the Message field?  Or am I at the mercy of the software?

Suggestions and answers will be appreciated.

Thanks!

To a point, Sven, you're at the mercy of the software. What you might want to consider doing is using the "Courier New" font - it is a fixed-width font. The others, Arial, Times, etc., are variable width fonts, where the "I" takes up less space than the "T" for example.
