    Is it possible to flip specific text in Word so that it appears upside down?
    I have a document that consists of two columns and I'd like to flip the text
    in the one on the right so that when you rotate the (paper) page 180
    degrees, the text in that column appears normal.

    Using Office 2000, but if that's too dated I'm thinking that the solution
    for even Office XP, if there is one, might apply.

    I personally have not heard of this or this option to be available

    Since I posted that I have found this on the web:
    http://www.flipatext.com/
    Unfortunately it doesn't work in Word 2K or WordPad, although it does work
    after a fashion in Thunderbird and in the Google search box using Firefox
    (the search results I got with it were kind of interesting).

    The other idea I saw was to take a screenshot of what you want, rotate it
    180deg and paste it in. It works OK, layout is not that easy though, plus
    the text is of course non-editable.

    Not a big deal in any case..
