curving web text around a "globe" - is it possible?

I have a client that wants 1/2 of an image of the earth to appear on the left side of a web page - and they want the text on the page to "hug" the earth image.  So they want it to arc or curve along the left side.

Is this possible using DHTML or something?

The globe is huge - so using all images for the text might be large to download.

Thanks, April

Hi aprillougheed,

The link below i think demonstrates what you are trying to achieve. It steps in every so often to create a curve. You could also use the <pre> tag and create a curve like ascii art. I think if you would like a nice smooth curve and greater control over the curve your project might be more suited to FLASH.

Just a couple of solutions for you to think about. Hope thats helps,

Reiss :o)

Nice example.  That's what they wanted.  Thanks so much.  April

P.S.  Flash is another good idea.
