And your solution includes writing yet another typesetting engine. Not a trivial task even for very skilled programmer, isn't it? ;-)

As the original poster talked about txt files, I assumed plain text (which could be a wrong assumption, I agree). If one furthermore assumes Windows (which is statistically sound since the original poster didn't mention an OS nor responded to my question), a single call to something like eg DrawText does the trick. Nothing that complicated, nothing like writing yet another typesetting engine.

But I did make some assumptions, and already admitted there's plenty of advantages to doing it the way Bob and you suggest. It's not what I would do, but I do acknowledge it does make sense too.
