Printing Text & Juxtaposed Images

Hi All,

Is there some magic formula (or a later version of RR) needed to get 
text to print over &/or under an image without distortion?

I've tried printing two different cards in different stacks using RR 
2.1.2 & Mac OS 10.2 and RR 2.0b1 & Mac OS 9 [same HP printer].  In 
one stack, text over/under the transparent portions of a gif is 
distorted differently depending on whether the field containing the 
text is in a higher or lower layer than the image.  In the other I am 
printing text in a transparent field over an image with a blendLevel 
of 80, and the text is printed with a white shadow around it [and 
remains so if blendLevel is set to 0.
