 hey, since i mailed this i've been playing around with properties, very 
nifty. and i think i've found the answers to the help i needed, its really 
not that difficult at all to copy the different text into its own box, fiddle 
with its style and properties and superimpose it over the original text.

found out how to select a set of frames, several inside one, to move them all 
together. is there a way to put a permanent 'group' setting on the collection 
so if i move the outer frame i don't have to remember to reselect ?
