Hey everyone! newb alert.

I am trying to make a stacked label that has the first line of text in a symbol and the next line right underneath with a smaller font but not in the symbol. And have the color based on a field value. I need it to look something like this:gis_label.jpg .

 

That second line may need to have some wrapping ability to it. I have figured out how to get labels with arrows, just one though, and a background box using the Maplex label engine. I don't know if there is a way to make the label have the 2 arrows snapped to to the beginning and end of the line, but that would be nice if anyone knows how(doesn't have to be as flamboyant as whats in the image).

Trying to make new Arcmaps look like old Autocad maps. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Arcmap 10.1 and I would like to work with vbscript.
