    Ask the person who told you it was possible?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    If you can define a curve mathematically, pstricks can put text on the curve. There may be other ways.

    PSTricks Example on TUG

    Or go to the TeX Users Group home page and search for something like "text curves"
