   Minor trial-and-error worked well, too. Tweaking the x and y positions a
percent or two, and the rotational angle a few degrees got it properly

text (and increases its size) relative to the monitor display.

   Strangely enough, it started working without the bgcolor= option. I am
using 6.5svn but I don't know the svn version number.

Many thanks,
