in word can text go around a graphic like rays of sun - text=ray

For a course I need a graphic. Teacher wants relavent details of this
exercise in graphic form. There would be a circle in the center of the
paper. Each piece of info would be an underlined sentence that angles into
the circle. It would look like the sun with rays coming out only each "ray"
is an underlined sentence giving information about the question. Doesn't
have to be fancy, but this basic setup is critical. Teacher uses a MAC. Can
this be done in Word 2003 or other MSFT product?? If not, do you know a
windows based program that would do this?
Thanks

You can do it in Word (after a fashion) using WordArt. You can also do
angular text by putting the text in a text box, copy, pastespecial > as
picture, then rotate the picture (tends to be a bit cruddy graphically).

You could use PowerPoint: textboxes can be rotated freely.

The best solution (graphically speaking) is to use a high-end graphics
program like Corel or PageMaker, that lets you place text along an arbitrary
path.

You can do it in Publisher, the drawing tools are more robust.
