    I know how to do it in CS2... With the attribute panel and all, but it doesn't work in CS1 because the stokes palette does not give you the option to place stokes outside the object - so all strokes I add end up overlapping each other "canceling" out the stroke underneath it. I managed to "get" what I need by creating lots of layers and stroking each layer - but that method has it's qualms when being rotated and the like. That and editing 7 layers of text can be a hassle. Any advise for a CS1 user? Other than buy CS2…

    You have to increase the width of the stroke behind the other stroke, so they get progressively bigger.

    Yeah, I know that - just wondering if there was a way to get it to do it like CS2 and not have to create more layers.

    You don't need layers... you just add multiple strokes in the appearance pallette to the same object.
