How do I invert text using Word 2007 Vista?

Is it possible to turn some of the text in a document upside down?
The only way I've managed to do this is to print twice, turning the paper
around the second time.

If I put the text into a textbox I cannot rotate the textbox.
Is there some way of getting selected bits of text on a page to be upside

Hope someone can help. Thanks

It's crap that Word2007 won't let us swivel a text box to any chosen orientation. Really weird because we can do it in PowerPoint 2007.

Anyway, an easy way of doing it is to put the text in a text box in Word. Remove the box outline. Copy the text box to PowerPoint (plain page format).

In PowerPoint, rotate the text box to whatever you want (upside down in this case). Copy the text box to the clipboard. Go back to Word and paste.

Copying the inverted text box to the clipboard in PowerPoint sometimes requires a bit of fiddling, but it is possible.

Too bad if you don't have PowerPoint on your computer.
