    You may be looking for the word ambigram which is something you can do with Word Art:

    I remember a French poet who was marvelous at it; I believe it was Apollinaire.

    Sherry,

    I agree with Sra that you are probably thinking of an ambigram. You might want to check out FlipScript ambigrams where you can create one of these designs from any two words you type in.

    Good luck, Sherry
