Well, that's annoying. The first several times I tried <Alt>+7 (no, I did not press the '+' key), my computer just beeped at me.
However, selecting the Text object and going into Properties / General allowed me to change some of the <space> characters to the 'â€¢' character by selecting the <space> character and typing <Alt>+7.
Thanks for the assistance. Even with the special character aggravation, Bent to Path is working a lot better than Text Along Curve (I just had to change the Text object's Properties to Flexible to add Thickness (under 3D) first.
