I need to rotate text on a page so it appears upside-down, so that the page
is "tumbled," with one side normal, and the backside upside-down...can I do
this with text (not graphics or clip art)?

Print one side of the page, turn the paper over and print the other!

Actually, if your printer duplexes, you should have a setting in the printer
Properties to choose whether the paper is flipped on the long or short edge.
You want the short edge if this is a portrait document.

You go to paint, make a textbox, type your letter, word (in the font you
want) rotate it. Copy it, and paste it! there you go! i spent a long time on
this my self

I have a similar situation, and a text box or a table just won't do enough.
I have a mass-mailing with a fold-out mailer that comes to a point on one
end (like the flap of an envelope). I can't tell my printers to feel
backwards. I need to print the addresses from a merge file rotated 180
degrees. What can I do? TIA

You could try using a unicode converting website that gives you the
unicode equivalent of text that makes the text look upside down (aka
flipped 180 degrees). One such site is 'flip text'
(http://www.upsidedowntext.com/) but a google search will yield many
more sites too.... in general these sites work better for lowercase
letters but give it a try and see if this works for you.

Word really is not equipped to do anything of this nature. For a one-off
document you may be able to force something but for merge purposes I think
you'd be asking the impossible. You'd do best to consider using MS Publisher
or other page layout program that supports mail merge *and* something other
than in-line text.
