Probably the best would be to enter the text into a separate cell. When entering text go to Format->Style->Text to make the cell a text cell. Alternatively, type whatever you want, select the cell and use the same menu item to convert the cell to text. And if you do this a lot, you will want to use the keyboard shortcut to do this which is cmd-7 on a Mac. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
