Box with word wrap

Version: 2.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

Q. I'm creating a book using the Standard LaTeX Book style. What's the most efficient method to put an SW paragraph into a box with word wrap? If I create a TeX field containing the text to be boxed in a minipage environment, I can't see the boxed text on the screen.

A. If you are familiar with LaTeX, we suggest you define a new environment in the Standard LaTeX Book style, create an appropriate tag in the .cst file, and then use it directly in your document. To see an example of how your boxed information would look on the screen, open the online version of Doing Mathematics with Scientific WorkPlace and look for one of the small yellow boxes containing the words "Gray box."
