Invisible HTMLText Character?

You are probably going to have to use a combination of tags
    say   <div>  <ul>  <li> <A href>  <p>

and it would be easier to eventually create the CSS since you will  
want to apply this to several text areas

The idea is to nest <div> and other tags to hold characters and then  
move them into position using

style='position:absolute; left: 5px' --move to the right +5
-- by setting the left attribute to 5 more pixels than the default  
layout position

style='position:absolute; left: -15px; top: 10px'
-- move left 15 pixels, and down 10

style='position:absolute; left: 100px; top: -120px'
--move left 100, and up 120

<div style='position: absolute; left='10px' >
<p> </p>


   <li  style='position:absolute; left: 5px'>Point one is the best  
   <li  style='position:absolute; left: 10px'>Point two is also very  

or something like

<div id='outer'>
<div id='innerA' style='position:absolute; left: 5px'>Point one is the  
best one   </div>
<div id='innerB' style='position:absolute; left: 5px'>Point two is  
also very good   </div>
