Having gone through the layout problems I am now onto the editing.
One a single page I have a number of blocks of text that I would like to be able to place next to each other in a way that would allow me to control the distance to margins and the gap between the two.
Tried tables but it's like opening yet another can of worms: editing inside cells, getting rid of boarders and shadows, etc. and no editable examples to be found so one could learn by copying and pasting existing code.
Please let me know
