    Thanks, Greg. I used those directions and got the text to fit, but I 
could not figure out how to reduce just ONE space. Anything I did seemed to 
affect everything in the frame. There is discussion in the wiki that made me 
think it was a matter of being in Select Item or Edit Contents mode. But I 
seemed to get the same results in either. Am I doing something wrong?
