Yes, that would be better ... but with Syriac, I can't get Inkscape to 
script (at least on the Mac here). I haven't tried Cenon or 
Creaturehouse Expression. But we /do/ have Illustrator on one of the PCs 
here, so I think I can get the text scripted on the other machine and 
then render it as a path to tweek.

Gareth, why not send me a sample text and how you'd like to have it 
curved? --- I can give it a try sometime soon.

United in adoration of Jesus,
