Remarks

ParagraphTextElement is an element which draws text into an area and automatically wraps text to fit in the shape.  It implements most interfaces implemented by TextElement as well as additional interfaces to define properties specific to this element.  For instance, columns can be added to the element to have text draw in columns within the defined shape. 

Geometry: ParagraphTextElements will accept an geometries of type esriGeometryEnvelope, esriGeometryPolygon, or esriGeometryBag.  If an Envelope is set, it is converted to a polygon internally.  A GeometryBag is used when drawing a single block of text in multiple polygons.  Since the internal geometries of a GeometryBag are ordered, the bag provided a consistent way to draw text into multiple geometries.
