Not exactly sure what you're wanting to do, but if you want to frame a box of text with a precise width in mathematica graphics, it isn't too difficult to do in mathematica. Consider this example: myWidth=200 p=1.00 myMessage="A moment of planetary concordance occurs when the Kepler harmonies fit closely into a known musical scale. Here, the scale used is the equal tempered chromatic, typical of Western music." desc=Graphics[Text[DisplayForm[FrameBox[Cell[myMessage,"Text",PageWidth=myWidth*p,TextJustification=1,FontFamily->"Times"]]],Scaled[{0.5,0.5}],{0,0}]]; myDisplay[x_]:=Display[$Display,x,ImageSize=myWidth{1,1}]; Show[desc,DisplayFunction=myDisplay,Frame=True,FrameTicks=None] where myWidth*p sets the width of the myMessage and the width of the overall image. Smaller widths don't result in smaller text, but at least the text will wordwrap within the box. By adjusting the the Scaled[] coordinates and the p=percent of image width you can format fairly neatly.
