    Arrow Scale Text in javascript

    Is it possible to scale TEXT like in graphic softwares (photoshop etc) on the web via javascript.
    Where user can type in text and stretch (or scale x axis or y axis) text on the display window with the handles.
    I have searched everywhere i can... have not found a solution. i would prefer not to use activeX . Any other solution is welcome, even flash.
    Thank you

    Are CSS filters (DX) ActiveX?
    If not, I have a nice way for you to scale stuff:
    style="width:#specsneededIthink;height:#specsneededIthink;filter:progID:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.m atrix(dx=scaleXNumber,dy=scaleYNumber,sizingMethod=resize,otherParamsHere)"
    I think that's right, you might wanna check @ msdn.com.
    Oh, was I supposed to put something here? ........

    if you use em or percentage sizes for your text scaling won't be a problem in the first place

    nb - filters are activeX controls, at the same security level as plugins like Flash

    But jbot's is the real answer
