@Scott, I understand applying text wrap to the floating box. What I'm asking about is what to use for the heading paragraph to force it to show up after the end of the floating box.

comment When did books start using underlines?
@DA01, "proper" typesetting or not, that is a typical example of underlines in a published work. When did those start occurring?

Out of curiosity, why don't you want text boxes to be threaded?

Here's a typical example of where I've seen underlines in published works: books.google.com/books?id=72ArAAAAYAAJ

comment When did books start using underlines?
@plainclothes, it's a real question. I know I've seen 20th century books using underlines, and I'm pretty sure I've never seen a 17th century book using them. Hopefully someone can narrow it down a bit more.

comment Is this an effect or a type of font?
text-shadow support is actually pretty good. All the modern browser versions support it, and the more recent versions of everything but IE support is as well.

comment Is this a photo or 3D render, and how would I give a photo a similar effect?
Post a regular link to the file, not a shortened one. Many people are wary of clicking on blind links.

comment How to add catchwords using InDesign
@plainclothes, I'm writing the manual for a 1700s-based board game, and all the little details together have helped evoke the period.

comment Get a vector path from Photoshop to Inkscape or SVG
Here's what I've found about these: SVG Kit is only for importing SVG into Photoshop (rasterizing everything), SVG Import/Export Converter is a plugin for another program (VGEdit), psd.js looks like an abandoned project, and the online converter rasterizes everything.

comment What is a “sprite”?
If you vote a question down, leave a comment explaining why. This helps people ask better questions, and it's just plain courteous.

comment What's the best way to make a curly brace used for grouping items together?
You're alluding to the real problem in your third paragraph, that merely scaling the curly brace would change its apparent weight/thickness.

comment What's the best way to make a curly brace used for grouping items together?
@DA01, notice how (in the pictures I linked to) the braces expand to encompass more text? Yes, they're basically the standard { character, but expanded.
