A very simple way to do something similar is by using fieldset <fieldset>text text text text </fieldset>

Have a look at this:

<html>
      <head>
            <title>Script Demo</title>
          <style>
               div.rounded-box {
               position:relative;
               margin: 5px;
               }
               div.top-left-corner, div.bottom-left-corner, div.top-right-corner, div.bottom-right-corner
               {position:absolute; width:20px; height:20px; background-color:#ffffff; overflow:hidden;}
               div.top-left-inside, div.bottom-left-inside, div.top-right-inside, div.bottom-right-inside {position:relative; font-size:150px; font-family:arial; line-height: 40px;}
               div.top-left-corner { top:0px; left:0px;}
               div.bottom-left-corner {bottom:0px; left:0px}
               div.top-right-corner {top:0px; right:0px}
               div.bottom-right-corner {bottom: 0px; right:0px}
               div.top-left-inside {left:-8px;}
               div.bottom-left-inside {left:-8px; top:-17px;}
               div.top-right-inside {left:-25px;}
               div.bottom-right-inside {left:-25px; top:-17px;}
               div.box-contents {
               position: relative; padding: 8px; color:#000;
               }
          </style>

      </head>

<body>
      <div class="rounded-box" style="background-color: #cddef0; width: 200px; height: 9em;font-family:verdana;font-size:10px;">
            <div class="top-left-corner">
                  <div class="top-left-inside" style="color:#cddef0;">&bull;</div>
            </div>
            <div class="bottom-left-corner">

            </div>
            <div class="box-contents">

And to change the height and width use the first DIV tag:

<div class="rounded-box" style="background-color: #cddef0; width: 98%; height: 300px;font-family:verdana;font-size:10px;">


Use this:

<html>
      <head>
            <title>Script Demo</title>
          <style>
               div.rounded-box {
               position:relative;
               margin: 5px;
               }
               div.top-left-corner, div.bottom-left-corner, div.top-right-corner, div.bottom-right-corner
               {position:absolute; width:20px; height:20px; background-color:#ffffff; overflow:hidden;}
               div.top-left-inside, div.bottom-left-inside, div.top-right-inside, div.bottom-right-inside {position:relative; font-size:150px; font-family:arial; line-height:42px;}
               div.top-left-corner { top:0px; left:0px;}
               div.bottom-left-corner {bottom:0px; left:0px}
               div.top-right-corner {top:0px; right:0px}
               div.bottom-right-corner {bottom: 0px; right:0px}
               div.top-left-inside {left:-8px;}
               div.bottom-left-inside {left:-8px; top:-18px;}
               div.top-right-inside {left:-26px;}
               div.bottom-right-inside {left:-26px; top:-18px;}
               div.box-contents {
               position: relative; padding: 8px; color:#000;
               }
          </style>

      </head>

<body>
      <div class="rounded-box" style="background-color: #cddef0; width: 98%; height: 300px;font-family:verdana;font-size:10px;">
            <div class="top-left-corner">
                  <div class="top-left-inside" style="color:#cddef0;">&bull;</div>
            </div>
            <div class="bottom-left-corner">
                  <div class="bottom-left-inside" style="color:#cddef0;">&bull;</div>
            </div>
            <div class="top-right-corner">
                  <div class="top-right-inside" style="color:#cddef0;">&bull;</div>
            </div>
            <div class="bottom-right-corner">
                  <div class="bottom-right-inside" style="color:#cddef0;">&bull;</div>
            </div>
            <div class="box-contents">
            - Place your content here -
            <ol style="margin-top:2px;">
                  <li>Point 1</li>
                  <li>Point 2</li>
            </ol>
            </div>
</body>
