Dear all,

i wonder how i can get a result as shown on the attachement.

I want to use the text halo as a mask on choosen layers, ex :
- the halo should mask a part of the road lines (black part of the line symbol)
- the halo should NOT mask the water layer

I thank you in advance for your idea (a have ArcInfo, with PLTS / Production Mapping).
