Subject Re: How to turn text mode back on?
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2016 21:32:23 GMT
Thanks.  I suppose my question is, how can I switch back and forth between
text and graphics mode on the same page?  There would be no nesting, just
sequential switching back and forth.  Can I do that, or am I restricted to
only a single text mode per page?

Thanks.

Blake
