    Use Word Art. Type your text as word art, then stretch it vertically.

    Enter the text in WordArt. Then stretch the WordArt object box.

    Alright I have done that in MS Word 07....dunno about the 2003 Version..!!

    First type whatever you wnat to type....

    Then Select All...and right click -- Then goto Font....

    I normally have the 'Calibri' font 'cause it is kinda smooth..:D

    Click the character spacing tab on the and the scale will be at 100%....

    Reduce it to 66 or 50% as per your requirements and then increase the font size....!! It has worked for me several times....!! So it should for you as well....It just decreases the text width making it look thinner....hence each sentence is able to accommodate more words than usual....!! you could then increase the font size if you want to stretch it..:p
