Hi Jay,
Sorry but I am not a programmer, and I have absolutely no idea how to  
do what you are telling me above.

Will this move the entire line, even if it is wrapped onto 4-5 lines?
How far up or down will it move it?

Would really appreciate if you could provide some instruction in  
plain english.

Thank you,
