How can I make text run vertically up the side of a document - like a border - without being enclosed in a text box ? Is it even possible?

I am wanting to make invitations with 'Eat, drink, and be Merry' round the edges.

The easiest way I know is to put the whole thing into a table (make the borders invisible) and then change the text direction in the cell of the table that contains the words you want.

There may be a better way out there, though!

I use publisher for creating invitations etc.

It has a neat item called word art which creates the text in all styles.
