comment Formatting tags doesn't seem to work?
As a work around you could add spaces between words, then add another text box on top of it so that it looks like it's flowing text. Hacky, yes, but it should work.

I bet you need to use all three color values (red, green, and blue).

comment How can i spatially add text to feature in argis 10?
If you use the select by location or attribute tools, paired with the 'Show only selected layer's' option you can change them all at once.

comment Problem getting the arcpy mapping module to export a layout view map
I managed to get this map to export/print properly, the only difference that I can see is that I used 'CURRENT' instead of indicating a path to the mxd. I didn't make reference to map.activeView at all...

comment Extracting polygons along a border
You'd run in in the Python window of ArcMap, but as I said it's not a complete solution. It's highly likely you'd need to have some scripting knowledge to debug / manipulate the script to do exactly what you're looking for. I didn't supply the field name that contains the state, nor did I include the path to your counties shapefile / feature class.

What's your means of measurement tho? As the crow flies, or travel based on actual roads?

comment Extracting polygons along a border
Is there a reason you're isolating line segments or is that just a means of knowing which counties share a border?

comment Which topics are fundamental for ArcGIS?
+1 - I understand the necessity to learn a piece of software, but it essentially boils down to pushing buttons. What you really need to know are the geographic concepts behind the buttons so you know which ones to push.

comment Why would a perfectly usable raster mosaic produce an unusable clipped raster?
That could be the issue that's a heck of a lot of data.
