If someone could help me put a story under the biography in this profile, into a box, and in smaller print. Thank you.

I would like to be able to put the story at the end of the biography, into some sort of box, perhaps with smaller text. Don't know how?

Don't know about a box, but you should be able to downsize the text by using <small style="font-size:85%;">text goes here </small>
Thank you. That looks much better to start with.
Hi Melanie, I didn't know that other text styles were approved by WikiTree. Please be so kind to provide a link to that help page so that I can be more informed.

Melanie and Ben, Louis is correct to be cautious.

Sorry.

But I was told wiki text (NOT html or CSS) was ok .. and that's where I got the size code: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Wikitext

From the linked help page (the bold is mine):

Wiki Markup is Standard

Unless specifically recommended against on a WikiTree help page or style page, all wiki markup tags can be considered standard. WikiTree will attempt to support them if it doesn't already. We will publish a specific rule recommending against them if necessary.

The style rules won't allow another text style but you can legally create a block with a single cell table See here

{| border="1"

You could enclose the text like this (but no box to sit it in):

<blockquote>yourtexthere</blockquote>
