sharepoint 2007 list - show description in webpart

Hi all,
If I want to add a list to my webpart, I cant find a way to add some text (eg. 3 lines) to the list. Just like the desciption. If I click the list it self, I see the 3 lines of explaining text. I want to have this on my webpart as well. Isnt that possible?

Thanks

The Description will show in the top site navigation if you want it to  ( you will need to update the descrption as needed)

This will only happen only when you visit the List not a List webpart inside another page..


But In general If you want to show some formatted text inside a page on sharepoint , simply add a "Content Editor Webpart"  and enter any text you want.

best of luck

Thanks George,
I added the Content Editor on top, even though I must say its a bit stupid you cant include the description in the webpart :)
