The text is part of the image. If you want a specific text on a page in
most cases the best way to assure that it will show on _all_ computers
is to make it a graphic. To set it off from the main text of the
articleyou have to leave some "white space around the graphic

The pictures are in a sub directory in another part of the site. Using
no ones band width other than my own.
As far as the other issue, that page is for my entertainment and is not
linked anywhere. If you notice there is no link back to any part of the
site it's on right now. On the main page of that site I have a link to
the PDF of the article on the copyright holders website. The article was
done in 2008 and will not be available for use for about seventy years.
I only sent the address as an example of what can be done to flow text
around images. Whether it will remain on the web is debatable. I did the
page strictly for myself and not for public consumption. I have several
such pages on my computer in the website site backups. If you look at
the source code for the page you will find there is no "doctype
declaration", head or anything.
