You can change the "Position" property to change the alignment of text related to the (x,y) property.
(i.e. Change the control point position).

In some case, you can also rotate text. (check out [url=http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=497.0]Polarizer[/url])

I conducted a workshop about EJS in Singapore(Chinese high school) at the year 2001.
And I conducted another 3 days workshop about EJS at Univ. of Malaysia last month (July 16-18,2007).
I do not know when I will go to Singapore again. If someone do invited me over again, I will let you know.
