After trawling through some dreaded html tutorials, I was able to approximate my intentions, so I posted a prose poem. The font turns out strange, but I actually like it.
Thanks to those who offered support, including one Hale True who is less than a year old and already knows more about computers than I do, mainly because it showed a tacit willingness to read such things.
Do check out Hale True's blog. There is video of him chasing a laser pointer. It made me laugh until I cried.
